2D - Visual Artist
Hello there!, I’m Alejandro Díaz, a mexican artist with architect training, creating and signing my paintings as “2D” since 2011. You may find in my work a blend of geometrical dynamics & bright mexican colours with a pinch of randomness.
This language of lines, geometrical shapes and vivid colours took me by storm in my 20s and made me travel in search of a solid self-taught art education from 2013-2018 to Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris, London, Berlin, Mexican Caribbean, Chiapas and Mexico City (of course!).
After 9 years of endless art adventures, colour
experiments, fun facts, laughs, many lessons and random experiences I find myself immersed in a Contemporary Art universe where my “Art-School-Free work” is ready to get closer to people’s emotions and experiences by exacerbating empathy through my visual language.
Please feel free to enjoy each brushstroke, colour, shape and feeling that is contained in my work, it was made to be shared after all.
