Artist Alex Mijares sees the relationship between the individual and the way their presence alters the overall energy of an environment in a very unique way. This Miami native has a talent for portraying the emotion and vibrant flavor of human beings (mostly women) with a lively blend of colors that come together in a psychedelic yet elegant style.
His paintings bleed with his passion for the wondrous yet mysterious settings that bring out the beauty of human interaction. Always an artist, Alex has converted his adolescent interest in sketching and graffiti into a desire to show the world what a gloriously animated circus of shapes we encounter each day.
Perhaps what drives Mijares to create is his hard working nature derived from his experiences running a family business, completing his MBA and traveling the world for new inspiration all at the same time. Elite recently interviewed this up and coming artist to find out more about his views on the art world and how his career path has effected his life.
