Alex Venezia

Alex Venezia b.1993 is a Virginia born, American representational painter whose work is represented nationwide and been the recipient of many awards. Themes and style in Venezia’s work reference a melancholic narrative and sensitivity to color nuance in light and shadow. A fear of committing to one style took Alex down the unconventional route of not attending an academy, but studying with several painters from various schools of thought worldwide including: Odd Nerdrum, Colleen Barry, Daniel Sprick, & Jeff Hein. He has most recently taken home the first place prize in the Still Life Competition at Grand Central Atelier in New York City. Alex currently maintains a studio in Raleigh, North Carolina where he produces work and teaches occasionally.
