Alex Cesarz Wins October Featured Artist Contest

I am very honored to announce October's Featured Artist Contest winner: Alex Cesarz. Read more about Alex and his artwork in this press release that was sent to the media, today.

Every month, American Frame, a web-based custom framing and art printing company, sponsors a contest for artists who sell and display work through American Frame’s online Art Gallery.  Winners are selected by customer votes on Facebook and receive a cash award and promotion through American Frame. This month’s winner is multimedia artist Alex Cesarz.

Music often inspires Cesarz’s work.  Predictably, the compositions privilege shape, color and movement over a literal or figurative representation of the world.  The winning work, “The Sound of Violins,” expresses in its title and its shape a direct relationship to music, and of course to the humans listening.  With a suggestion of musical notes and a playful sense of line and proportion, the work hints at both the joy of composition and performance as well as its technical challenges. 

Mostly self-taught, Cesarz draws using multiple mediums and digitally edits to produce the finished art.  The dark colors often featured pair well with his preferred framing style: streamlined black mouldings.
