ABOUT ALEX GARANT
My name is Alex Garant and I am a visual artist. Using traditional mediums such as oil paint, I slowly became one the leaders of analogue Glitch Art by using patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of my imagery. I am currently represented by galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Australia, and my works have been shown in several museums including the Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in California. I have also been featured in several contemporary publications such as Hi-fructose, Juxtapoz, Beautiful Bizarre etc. What a lot of people do not know is that after Art School, I actually spent over 15 years of my life working in corporate advertising sales and marketing while simultaneously growing my art career. After suffering a heart attack at the age of 30 and completely changed my perspective on life, I decided to focus on my true love: art.
WHY WAS THE PROGRAM CREATED
The world is vast, however, 2020 has shown us we can be connected to the world and yet feel isolated all at once. From communicating with aspiring artists via Social Media, I realize a lot of creative people, do not know where to start when it comes to style, networking or even finding motivation. I want to connect with more people one-on-one to share some of my knowledge, as more and more people turn to the internet as a place to promote art, using simple tools properly can help you achieve your own artistic goals. From painting techniques, materials to use, how to talk with galleries, establishing your voice, building an artist website, basic branding, all the way to complex marketing strategies for artists, I would love to pass the love forward and create a community of like-minded people.
