Alex is a free­lance il­lus­tra­tor based in Penn­syl­va­nia. His in­ter­est in draw­ing and paint­ing grew af­ter re­lo­cat­ing to the US from his na­tive Uruguay in 2001. Alex’s ini­tial pas­sion stems from video games and an­ime, but now the Art Nou­veau and Baroque move­ments are key in­flu­ences in his work.

“Or­ganic shapes and the four nat­u­ral el­e­ments are re­oc­cur­ring themes through­out my art,” he says. “Smoke and wa­ter are two of my favourite el­e­ments to draw.”

1 Sym­phony

“Mu­sic is a huge pas­sion of mine, as well as an in­spi­ra­tion for my work. This piece show­cases the or­ganic na­ture of mu­sic from the heart and how it flows, breaks and ma­nip­u­lates into many other forms.”

2 As­cen­sion

“This was fea­tured in the Cos­mos’ con­stel­la­tion show at Light Grey Art Lab in Min­nesota. For the con­stel­la­tion of Can­cer, I de­picted the god­dess Hera tak­ing care of the dy­ing crab Karki­nos as his as­tral body as­cends to the sky.”

3 Vel­vet

“The ma­jor­ity of my work is based on re­search and sym­bol­ism, how­ever once in a while I ex­plore a stream of con­scious­ness. It’s a nice change of pace and I al­ways seem to learn some­thing new about my­self.”
