To discuss my artwork in 2013

Alex Johnmeyer is an award-winning St. Louis based artist working in watercolor, oil and acrylics for over twenty six years. Through his vibrant realism paintings, Alex combines emotional symbolism and iconic imagery, expressing personal stories of love, joy, and loss: the struggles and celebrations of life that unite us all. Based upon his own photography, each of the resulting works is rich in its own unique story, inspired by photography taken from his own life. 

Alex was the winner of St. Louis Magazine's 2021 Reader's Choice "A List" for "Best Fine Artist," and is a juried member of The Best of Missouri Hands. His work has been showcased throughout the St. Louis metro area and juried exhibitions since 2012. Six of his original watercolors are installed at the newly built SLU Hospital on Grand Blvd in St. Louis, MO. Alex actively participates in charity benefits throughout the year, including "Wall Ball" to benefit Artscope, and "Art of PAWS" to benefit Vivent Health. Over the last ten years, Alex has been featured by Fox 2 News, HEC-TV, STL TV, NPR, Hip Essence, The Riverfront Times, Voyage magazine, All the Art quarterly magazine, and St. Louis Parenting magazine.

 

Alex uses personal experiences as motivation to inspire others in both art and life. With twelve years of non-profit experience, he has a sincere passion for volunteerism and support organizations; meshing art with an ongoing commitment to positive social changeAs a founding member and continued volunteer for the Metro Trans Umbrella Group, a non-profit transgender advocacy and support organization, Alex was curator of MTUG’s annual LGBTQ+ art exhibition, “Transcending the Spectrum” from 2013 until 2021. Alex has also been a volunteer art therapy teacher with the Arts as Healing Foundation since 2017, and continues to enjoy helping individuals living with chronic illness heal through artistic expression. 

In his free time, Alex's interests include fashion, film, photography, jewelry design, daily exercise, cooking, and traveling. He mostly enjoys spending time with his husband and their daughter, and all their friends.
