“The symbolism on my sculptures ranges from the very obvious to show my interpretation, to nothing more than a subtle mood created by forms to allow the viewer’s mind to wonder into the depths of the image.”
Alejandro came to the US in 1984 to work as a figurative sculptor in New York City and to attend the prestigious Parson’s School of Design.
His reputation as a fine sculptor preceded him, and in a short time he was designing and creating fine dolls and figurative sculptures for a number of leading companies like Lenox, The Franklin Mint, Bradford Exchange to name a few.
Since 1985 he has participated in solo and group exhibitions in New York City, Pennsylvania and Mexico City.
In 1987 he moved to Chester County, PA where he has his home and studio and lives with his three pups, Violeta, Claire and Lola.
