About

Chihuahua Woman - Pink Mixed Media on Glass Dimensions: 29" x 17.5" x 1" 2014 One of A Kind Art is a way of living. For Carlos Alejandro, art is the art of the everyday. He explores the diversity of common man-made objects, reassembling them and creating new things, things that express a new idea. He uses the Dada concept to elevate everyday banal objects, transforming them into works of art with the intention of questioning and renewing the foundation of our beliefs. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, ordained by destiny, born to a Colombian mother and Puerto Rican father, which at that time was stationed there with the U.S. Army. From then on, his interest for visual arts grew and that is how he decided to study Graphic Design in U.J.T.L. University in Bogota. After finishing his studies, he took a different path and worked in depth on the visuals leading him to participate in a series of art and design exhibitions.The lack of opportunities and his unwillingness to conform, pushed him to travel to the U.S. to pursue his dream of becoming an artist. In his work, Carlos Alejandro uses a vast array of non-conventional materials such as: pills, hair, bottle caps, chop sticks, etc. He takes common objects out of their context and using different techniques, he transforms them into art pieces, resulting in an interesting eclectic fusion with a strong influence of Dada. In his subject matter, one notices a great concern for the social aspect of the human being which to Alejandro, groups the universality of his environment, demonstrating a personal point of view that can put things in perspective, extending possible answers to common life issues such as human rights, spirituality, consumerism, recycling, etc...In addition to his gallery showings, he has participated in cultural exchanges, workshops and talks. He has also worked in done interior design for commercial spaces in Miami and Portland, Or.
