Mexican-born, Texas-based painter Alejandro Diaz is only 27-years-old, but he produces incredible work that betrays his relative inexperience and youth.

Alejandro Diaz's work combines many divergent and strong artistic elements to create a distinct and memorable style entirely his own. His illustrations are fun, multi-layered, chaotic and exploratory, capturing a true and complicated beauty in each painting.

Alejandro Diaz developed his style after moving from simple portraits of friends and family members to including the influence of pop and iconic imagery and European-style master paintings. "My paintings suggest a possible narrative, but are not definitive statements about anything in particular," he said. "A little bit of everything is there, from social justice and politics to the simple appreciation of the color blue."

Alejandro Diaz has had his work exhibited all over the United States, including Dallas, Seattle and Los Angeles. With only three years in the game, Alejandro Diaz is an illustrator with incredible potential and a bright future in the art world.
