Philly alex Johnmeyer

Philly Alex Johnmeyer is an artist based in St Louis, Missouri. In 1996, Alex majored in fine art at Southwest Missouri State University. In 2008, Alex started their company, Super Keen Creations, LLC selling commissioned paintings to art collectors and St. Louis businesses.

In 2011, Alex began showing their work in galleries throughout St. Louis. Alex actively participates in charity benefits throughout the year, including "Wall Ball", a charity auction to benefit Artscope,  and "Art of PAWS", a benefit for the St. Louis Effort for AIDS. In January 2014, Alex began volunteering with MySLArt.org. During the three years with MySLArt.org, Alex served as Curator, Art Installation Manager, and Volunteer Coordinator on the Board of Directors through December 2016. In 2015, Alex became involved with The Blooming Artists Project, and now acts as co-director with Marilyn Callahan.

Currently, Alex creates paintings based upon their own photography. The scenes and still-lifes Alex captures are either naturally occurring or created in the artist's studio. Alex then meticulously recreates the photography in either a combination of watercolor, gouache and ink, or acrylic sometimes combined with different texture media.

“I feel my artistic style is a mix of photo realism and expressionism.  When one of my paintings shows texture, whether actual or implied, I feel it pulls the audience into the piece. Each of the resulting works is rich in its own story and symbolism, inspired by color theory and societal iconography. I feel the paintings I create are a vibrant translation of my world... an opportunity to capture a moment in time and share it with others. I hope to express personal stories of love, joy, and loss, the struggles and celebrations of life that everyone can understand.”
