Alex Baumgartner, February 2012

Alex was born in San Francisco and moved to Oakland in 1985 with his family.  Alex has a bachelor’s degree in Art Studio and Sociology from the University of California Davis.  While at Davis, he studied under great studio professors, such as Dave Hollowell, Wayne Thiebaud, and Annabeth Rosen. After graduating in 2007, Alex continued to paint and charcoal on his own while living with his older brother in an apartment they shared together in Oakland. Now, Alex is attending the California State University of Sacramento pursing a teaching credential in special education.  He still finds time to paint in Davis, where he now lives with his girlfriend.  The two share a condominium and Alex has just finished his first year in the two-year program.  Alex feels that he will always have a place for art in his life no matter how busy he gets.  As of lately, Alex has been exploring his work with oil paints and has brought a handful of his pieces out to share at Oakland Art Murmur.
