Alex Beard Studio

Born in 1970, Alex Beard is a painter and author who has emerged as one of his generation’s most creative and successful artists.

Influenced to think creatively from a young age by his uncle, noted photographer, Peter Beard, and his mother, author and editor, Patricia Beard, Alex grew up in the NYC of the 1970’s 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 studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts and participated in the New York Studio School’s Drawing Marathon. His first solo exhibition was in SoHo during his early twenties. Since then, he has had significant one-man shows in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans and in cities as far afield as Hong Kong. He is the creator of a unique style of painting called “Abstract Naturalism,” and is considered by many as a successor to the school of visual mathematicians championed by M.C. Escher. Alex’s artwork hangs in public and private collections around the world. Alex’s New Orleans studio, like his New York studio before it, has become the hub of an art career that has blossomed into more than just a creative endeavor; but also a successful enterprise. Alex’s studio is open to the public in a way that encourages and fosters interaction between the artist and his audience. Vanity Fair magazine singled Alex out as “… an accomplished artist, an adventurer and an accidental entrepreneur.”
