“I’m always inspired by my city,” says Detroit native Alphonso Cox, who has been creating art since he was old enough to pick up a pencil. “Detroit has a style that can’t be copied or repeated; that’s the type of style my art represents.” Pulling from what’s happening in the world around him, Cox is not afraid to mix up styles or mediums, creating works out of everything from ink to oil to acrylic to charcoal.
