About Artist Alexander Sylvester Fritz
I’m an artist based on the Costa Del Sol, Spain, living in Marbella for the past 15 years.
Working on the Coasta Del Sol
I started work early as an apprentice working for a few Artists and Paint Effect Decorators here on the Costa, working on many projects that ranged from large wall murals to decorative paint effects and general painting.
Ending My Apprenticeship
The last Artist I worked under for the majority of the time and we got on great was known very well here on the Costa by the nickname “Dave The Brush” he was a fabulous artist that oozed creativity, I felt very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with him for a quite a number of years right until his passing in 2008. He filled me with confidence and taught me most of what I know about paint effects, I also had the opportunity to work on some great mural projects which was also great fun.
Since his passing I started out working on my own as a freelance artist, painting mural projects and paint effects, I started my own Painting & Decorating business here on the Coasta del Sol which I named PaintWorks Costa Del Sol since I was fully trained in preparing all my own surfaces for paint effects and so on painting and decorating is a logical step.
In recent years I’ve still continued with painting and decorating on the costa del sol, I’ve expanded to a small team that helps take on larger works. I myself have spent the last 2 years focusing more on my art work, completing commissions in my studio. I love what I do, I love to take my time to just give a commission or project that little extra, and once I’m satisfied then I can call it a day.
