Tiny Fly Ring
In the early 70’s, Alex Streeter visited Tangiers, Morocco on a motorcyle trip that followed the footsteps of the beatniks, in particular those of poet William S. Burroughs nearly 20 years before. On a whim, Alex decided to bring along his wax carving kit, and so began a pattern of nomadic creation and exotic inspiration that would define his work for years to come.
Upon arrival at the Istanbul Hotel, a well-known watering hole that played host to many rockstars of the period, he set up a table in the lobby and began to work. In Tangiers he would go on to carve many of his most popular works; One of which is “the Fly”, an intricate carving of a life-size housefly and a wonderful example of Alex’s early explorations into dark surrealism.
