It is his cityscape, landscape and architectural paintings that brought Alex Zwarenstein’s work to public attention; among private collectors and in intimate corporate settings they have endured in popularity. Alex brings to each piece a technique that is reminiscent of Post Impressionist painter, Paul Cezanne; a 'broken color' technique, an accumulation of small brushstrokes coalescing into a rich variety of color and surface textures that help define a slightly surreal vision of pastoral and urban landscapes.


Maniere Blanche is a technique pioneered by Maurice Utrillo, and developed over the years by artists working in a variety of styles. The technique itself involves painting and etching into a ground of titanium white. Alex has used it in the development of his gently surreal compositions. The technique allows him to draw from imagination, and to improvise complex narratives. These works, often large, have found their way into corporate board rooms, homes, and lobbies around the world
