Alexis Rockman, a renowned American contemporary artist, will speak at the next club event. In this event, Alexis will tell us about how growing up in New York City shaped his paintings of future landscapes depicting the impact of climate change, species extinction, and evolution influenced by genetic engineering.

Alexis's work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and numerous galleries around the world. He also worked with Oscar-winning film director Ang Lee on watercolor concept paintings and visual sequences for the movie Life of Pi.

Alexis's books Oceanus and Works on Paper are available online. Members are welcome to do a signing at the event.
