My name Is Herold P. Alexis. Aside from being a self taught artist I am also a New York City Police Department Detective. I have over 19 years experience. The inspiration I draw from is from my experience working in the streets of New York.
All the paintings are inspired by actual events that I personally experience or that which my co workers experience. Some of the paintings are snippets of an event that had a lasting impact on me. Some of the topics I paint about are: domestic violence, policing as a black police officer in communities that have lost trust in the police, stop and frisk.
