What is the transition from school to a career like? How do you determine your value as an artist, especially as a young one?

About Alex Kupczyk

Alex was born in California, the first son of two animators. His first serious decision towards being an artist was upon applying to an Art High school called LACHSA.

After high school, he attended the Art Center College of Design, where he became dedicated to the fine arts.

Alex has benefited from a ruthlessly critical eye and the ego to combat it, giving himself the permission to make large-scale works and work with mediums that might feel daunting.
