To discuss my artwork in 2013

Alex Johnmeyer is an award-winning St. Louis based artist working in watercolor and acrylics for over 20 years. Using his own photography of scenes that are either naturally occurring or created in studio, he feels when one of his paintings shows texture, whether actual or implied, it pulls the audience into the piece.

 

Alex won 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 over the last twelve years. Six of his original watercolor paintings are installed at the new 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. He is currently represented at Artisans in the Loop Gallery.

Alex uses personal experiences as impetus to inspire others in both art and life. As a founding member and continued volunteer for the Metro Trans Umbrella Group, a non-profit transgender advocacy and support organization, Alex has been curator of MTUG’s annual LGBTQ+ art exhibition, “Transcending the Spectrum” since 2013. Alex has a true passion for the furtherance of other advocacy and support organizations; meshing art with an ongoing commitment to social activism. This devotion to empowering others to live their best life is mirrored in Alex’s dedication to detail in creating his paintings. Each of the resulting works is rich in its own story and emotional symbolism, inspired by color theory and societal iconography.

 

Over the last ten years, Alex has been featured on Fox 2 News, HEC-TV, STL TV, NPR, Hip Essence, The River Front Times, “All the Art” Quarterly Magazine, and St Louis Parenting Magazine. 

 

Alex explains his work as such: “I feel the paintings I create are a vibrant translation of my world, an opportunity to capture a moment in time and share it with others. I am presently exploring the ideas of community diversity, childhood nostalgia, and finding beauty in the broken. Through my art, I hope to express personal stories of love, joy, and loss: the struggles and celebrations of life that most everyone can understand.”
