As an artist, writer and traveler, Alex Beard has emerged as one of his generation's most creative and successful painters. Born in 1970, Alex was influenced to think creatively from a young age by his uncle Peter Beard, the photographer, and his mother Patricia Beard, an accomplished author and magazine editor, Alex grew up as a child among some of the world's most interesting and influential people. Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, and their Pop World cohorts were familiar faces in the Beard household.
Alex's SoHo Studio can be rented for private gatherings - private dinners, corporate events, birthday parties, engagement parties, fashion trunk shows, private studio tours, book launch events and networking parties. Guests that purchase artwork can receive 10% of the cost for the host of the party, or 10% can be donated to a charity of their choice.
You can read more about Alex in the April 2008 issue of Vanity Fair. (Page 110 - in case you want to sneek a peek instead of buying the mag) Photos of Alex by Ben Hoffmann. (By the way, the cover story cracks me up. 'Who Says Women Aren't Funny?' Hey, that's not nice.) Visit Alex's MySpace here.
The video of Alex painting is truly fascinating. Enjoy your coffee and his global music as you witness the birth of 'The Salmon Run'.
