Alexander Dominique von Klitzing was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1988, and grew up in the Northern suburbs of Johannesburg. Although his upbringing was primarily German, he was exposed to a variety of languages and cultures growing up.
After matriculating he decided to take his passion for art and sculpture to a new level by going digital. Alex studied 3D Animation at ‘The Animation School of Cape Town’. After completing his qualification and working within the digital industry, Alex went back to traditional sculpting, fulfilling his ultimate passion of art.
In 2011 Alex started working at Dionysus Sculpture Works under the mentorship of Angus Taylor, developing the combination of digital art with traditional art forms, thus shaping his own style to what it is today.
