CC Artist Laureate Alexey Steele Live Streams Portrait Sessions
September 9, 2021
Steele launched the Love My Neighbor - Culver City project in October 2020 with a portrait of long-time Culver City resident, Dr. Janet Cameron Hoult. Upcoming portraits will include Culver City notables, producer David Mack and musician George Kahn.
Steele will live stream remote portrait sessions with his models, who will remain in self-isolation. Artist and model will maintain visual contact via video conference transmitted onto a TV screen in the artists' studio in Long Beach.
Steele will work on the portrait as if his model was sitting right in front of him. Each drawing session and his interaction with the model will be broadcast via Facebook Live. Viewers will be able to watch the portrait come to life, listen to Alexey’s commentary about his work and his conversation with his model, and even ask questions.
The sessions will also be recorded and available for later viewing at https://www.facebook.com/ArtistLaureate/...
