Born in the hot and humid city of Guangzhou, China in 1952, Chen first discovered his love of art while developing a series of drawings at the age of 4. He continuously nurtured his talent and vision as his life went through tumultuous change. When he was 16, Chen read Around the World in 80 Days and was struck with the urge to travel. Walking and biking, Chen journeyed as far as he was able to document his surroundings. At 16 he moved to the countryside where, as a farmer, Chen learned to love the land and became in awe of its splendor. It wasn't until the late 1980s that Alexander moved his family to San Francisco. Since then, he has created a series titled Alexander's World based on modern life in his beloved adopted country, the United States.
