While receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts Education from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, Alex Anastas volunteered for the Rural Action Network, registering voters in the run-up to the 2004 Presidential Election. Shortly after finishing undergrad, Alex went on to receive a Masters of Art from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. He has known about the great work done by HeadCount since he saw the ads during one of the earliest Bonnaroos, but didn’t begin his volunteer experience until moving back to the NY area after 6 years living down under.
Alex is a teaching artist in NYC. He has traveled extensively throughout North & Central America, Europe, Africa and the Australian continents. Alex has a passion for not only visual arts but also all live music, sports, and the outdoors.
