Alex Sheriff was born in 1988 and began drawing dinosaurs shortly after. He was not able to shake the habit.
Sheriff's work deals with recognizing, blurring and erasing the gap between human and natural history. As a way of navigating the Anthropocene, the new epoch we find ourselves in, Alex clumsily and playfully adopts the viewpoint of species and matter that are other than human.
