Alejandra Villegas [ENG]
The idea that the work has not just been written and that it has a spiral ahead in its creative nature, responds eloquently to the path of this painter. Her exploration, self-taught and her technical repertoire includes oil, acrylic, collage, ceramics, and graphics. Alejandra Acknowledges as art influences the Austrian symbolist, Gustav Klimt; the Swiss Paul Klee; and the Spaniards, Miquel Barceló and Manolo Valdés and, for portraits, the British Lucian Freud.
She feels very attracted to live knowing the world and as a result of her travels, she became an observer of colors, culture, food, smells, which have been an important source of inspiration, in whose language she has been expressed fluently. Due to this her work has acquired a more universal touch.
