Alejandro Chen Li
Born in Mexico, raised in Brooklyn, NY, Alejandro Chen Li is an emerging artist whose work has the same subversive wit and graphic attitude recognized in "street-art".
On average, about twenty layers of color are silkscreened over one another to create a retinal delight where the eye moves from one area of thick color to the next.
Alejandro, 23, lives and works in New York. Cartoons of the early 90's, (mighty Max, ninja turtles, Tiny Toons, etc...), nature, graffiti and decaying urban landscapes are cited as influences. The four prints included in this show are part of an ongoing series following two main characters on a quest for some unknown objective.
