Alex Devereux was born in Elmhurst, Illinois and raised in the Northern suburbs of Chicago. Since childhood, Alex had a strong interest in drawing and painting coupled with an interest in Vintage/Retro Americana. This unique pairing would later shape his artistic body of work. Alex began his formal artistic studies at The American Academy of Art of Chicago. While studying Graphic Design with an emphasis on Illustration, he went on to earn his AAS. It was a college project that brought Alex to a local junkyard to photograph a rusted out 1956 Buick. This photograph would be the inspiration for his initial painting that started him on his photo-realism journey. Utilizing mediums such as pencil, colored pencil, and watercolor, it would be Acrylic that Alex found most effective in capturing the photo-realistic look.
Moving his studio from Chicago to Florida. Alex now concentrates on both a career in Graphic Design with and strong concentration in Fine Art. Alex’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows in Chicago and Arizona. His work can also be found in numerous private collections throughout the country. He currently lives in Northern Florida with his wife and three children.
