Hello, my name is Alexander I. Sánchez Pérez, I was born on June 4, 1993 in San Juan, P.R. I am a visual artist, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from the University of Puerto Rico, Carolina campus and a second concentration in Fine Art focused on Painting from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras campus My artistic influence as a child was the illustration of graffiti, when my mother bought me a book at the Borders store titled: "Graffiti World: Street Art from five continents", I remember that later, I was always looking through the window of the car admiring graffiti on the way to school and as my interest in art developed, I began to study different movements in art history. Today most of my works are oil paintings, drawings and murals. The themes vary in my works: Nostalgia, mysticism, life, death, politics, and the everyday are some concepts in my work.
