Influenced heavily by childhood fairy tales, psychedelia, and the occult; forever inspired by the beauty of the natural world including astro and particle physics. Axelrod is known for his unique use of the spectacle and aesthetic choices. A practitioner of vast disciplines including painting, installation, performance, sculpture and video art, Axelrod’s work has been displayed internationally in galleries, museums and public spaces in cities across the globe.

Shortly after its re-launch, Myspace created a National televised ad campaign around Axelrod’s prolific “Melting Rainbows” performance, which aired for a year on MTV.  Axelrod continues to perform his “Melting Rainbows” experience at a variety of dome theaters and venues to this day.

Recently, Axelrod was honored with a survey exhibition, entitled “Dark Matter”, covering a decade of the artists work at Barnsdall Art Park and The Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House in conjunction with the city of Los Angeles. Marking the first time in its history a single artist has ever done so.

Featured in publications including The Washington Post, Flaunt, LA Weekly, VICE and the New York Times.
