Artist of the moment……….Alejandro Diaz

 

Alejandro Diaz is a contemporary artist renown for his work which features text, neon, and humorous sayings.

His basis for much of his art was based on cardboard signs that he made and sold in Mexico that he titled “Mexican wallpaper.”

Although the political and social ideas behind his signs are the same as always, he now uses neon to create more contemporary art. Many works make a racial or class statement cultural statement.

Diaz was raised in San Antonio, Texas. Diaz has also lived in Mexico City and now is based out of New York City.

The artist has also finished sculptures for public commissions.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Diaz is certainly one of the funniest artists out there! I found his take on Warhol’s 15 seconds of fame to be spot on!
