Alex Katz
Alex Katz was born in 1927 in Brooklyn. He studied at The Cooper Union in New York and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. He is known for his sculptures and prints, but best known for his painting of people. His subjects always of the people at the center of his cultural life. His aim is to capture the essence of the contemporary, urban world, like that of the Japanese concept of Ukiyo-e- “the floating world.” Katz said himself that he wants to paint in the present tense, of the here and now, his world. Katz’s style is that of the vernacular. He uses subjects and colors close to himself, ones that almost everyone looking at his work can immediately connect with. He uses bright, flat colors, to further stylize his subjects. He said himself that he likes to paint fast because the surface gets so smooth. He has exhibited at the Des Moines Art Center, IA, the University of Iowa Museum of Art, IA, The Art Institute of Chicago, IL, the Smithsonian Institute, D.C., in Europe, Central and South American, Canada, and the Middle East.
