‘With his evocative dayglo paintings popping-up in unexpected places, Alias Trate is quickly establishing himself as one of the UK’s most promising emerging artists.’
‘Full of pensive, piercing eyes and contorted gender-fluid bodies, his work deals with troubled states of being.’
Aesthetica Magazine
'Trate's existential works…defy easy categorisation. Their elongated bodies and striated faces owe much to modernism of the early 20th century, while their sumptuous tertiary colouration is reminiscent of contemporary figurative painting.'
