Alex Overfelt was born in Wellington, Kansas in 1989 but now lives in Dallas, Texas where he works as a professional tattoo artist at Sleep Hollow Tattoos. His work as a tattoo artist has brought clients from all over, but first and foremost he is a painter and it show in his work. Overfelt does not have a website or a clear way to purchase his art, but buyers find a way to get their hands on his grim yet breathtaking paintings or prints. Alex has an active Facebook and Instagram page which I urge to visit. The dark visions that come to life on board, canvas, paper, and even mirror are haunting. His passion for art has been with him for as long as he can remember. In 2008 Overfelt began studying art at the Art Institute of Dallas, but ended up changing directions and began his apprenticeship as a tattoo artist. The painting I have highlighted is still in the works, but as you can see, it looks like it near completion. Visit the links below and see what his past creations are, and what is in store for him in the future.
As of October 2016, I intended to use this blog as an accompaniment to my Facebook page and Instagram page. On this blog I post information and updates about my work as well as once a month I highlighted an artist whose work I like (I stopped doing this when I opened my gallery www.GalleryBlueDoor.com). As of March 2017, I began posting a monthly Story Entry with an accompanying illustration of mine. In mid-2019 I took a break from this, but it will resume.
