Eyes on Richmond, Virginia based artist, Alex Beck.
Today I want to introduce you to Alex Beck, an award-winning painter and illustrator who works from his studio in Richmond, Virginia. He is best known for his versatile artworks created with oil, acrylic, and gouache. His art draws inspiration from different locations and old photo diaries. Whether Kodachrome film or Polaroid, he is fascinated by the unique look of analog photography as well as the different effects that result from different lighting. Please read more about this talented artist below the first image.
When creating a new piece of art, Alex Beck often starts with a collage of different photographs. After that, the distinctive finish comes by painting. This way, he wants to create a conversation between his life and the life of others. His work mainly centers around people’s nostalgic memories. Alex masterfully juxtaposes ordinary portraits with a variety of scenarios. Some artworks can be found below. For more, please visit his website or follow him on Instagram.
