Alex Ledante was born in Taibei but banished to the states for a crime he did not commit. Although he is a classically trained artist, Alex had been anticipating digital art for many years before it was practical to do on a desktop computer. Once the software was available, he built a 286/33 and realized his lifelong dream of making somebody else do his backgrounds while he concentrated on the foreground. The ability to have multiple copies of a single work and the undo function allowed Ledante the liberty to become a much more experimental artist than he had been with traditional media. Now he focuses his efforts on reconciling traditional art with raytraced elements.
