Alejandro Carpintero

Born in Madrid in 1981, Spain.

 

When Carpintero conceives an artwork he is deeply inspired by what surrounds him, but mostly in the form of fragments. Colours, expressions and images come together first in his mind, then on the canvas, resulting in an imperfect and unfinished picture of reality. Inspired by graffiti and urban art, Alejandro Carpinteromakes large use of the impasto technique to distance himself both from his academic education and from an hyperrealistic result. He is interested in the concept of transition as emerges in his subjects, the roadsigns, which are deprived of their original purpose, becoming pure aesthetic objects, as well as teenagers, caught in that moment of transition between youth and adulthood. What he attempts to represent is the connection between his inner suggestions and the external context, seizing the moment on his canvas.
