Alex Kontos

Alex is from Fayetteville, Georgia. He has always had a love for art, and first heard of medical illustration from a high school art club teacher. He decided that day to pursue the field, and went on to the University of Georgia for a BFA in Scientific Illustration. During his undergraduate career, Alex also coached gymnastics, which continued to develop his love for education and amazement for human physiology.

While at UIC, Alex plans to continue to broaden his definition of Biomedical Visualization and explore all potential future paths, with specific interest in 3D modeling and traditional illustration.  Eventually, Alex hopes to help fill educational gaps for LGBTQIA+ inclusive healthcare.
