**ARTIST SPOTLIGHT - Mr. Alex Bostic; Illustrator and Fine Artist.
Every time we feature an artist coming to this year's Threefoot Festival, we get the chance to learn about the amazing talent that surrounds us. Today we are honored to feature Mississippi State University Associate Professor and incredible Artist, Alexander Bostic. Alex's artwork contains such detail that you almost have to do a double take to make sure you aren't looking at a photograph. The realism of his pieces not only tell the story of the story of the subject he is painting, but it in fact brings the story to LIFE. Alex grew up in Brooklyn, New York where he embarked on his journey at the young age of 7. At a very young age he developed a love for art and began attending Pratt University on the weekends. He would use his imagination to develop 2D and 3D art and even began to combine his love of comics and art to create fictional characters. Alex received his Masters of Art from Syracuse University and now divides his time by helping others learn to create all while creating himself. His pieces are truly an inspiration for not only young budding artists, but also of non-artists to see the beautiful diversity and to be inspired by the culture he portrays in every piece.
Alex, we are honored to have such an artists at this year's festival. We cannot wait for others to experience your kind demeanor and lively personality! #ArtistSpotlight #MississippiArt #Mississippi #ArtistofInstagram #ArtEatsAndBeats #LocalArt #BeautifulArt #Culture #SyracuseUniversity #ArtFestival
