Artist of the Day…Alex Katz

Alex Katz is an artist after my own heart. With his awesome collection of bold and graphic prints, I knew I had to feature him and share his work with you all. I’m drawn to the simple block-like aesthetic of his work because it’s very striking – especially when there is a bold use of color. Katz works cover a variety of techniques including painting, woodblocking, and lithorgraph work. My favorite pieces were done in the 60’s and 70’s but Katz is still quite active – he’s shown in exhibits in galleries all around the world.

I would love to own one of these prints. Great stuff!
