Alejos Lorenzo

About Alejos Lorenzo

 

In Alejo’s paintings we see influences of various stylistic trends, such as pop art,
Post-Impressionism, and Japanese ukiyo-e. They are spots of pure, distinct colors, playing
together harmoniously creating subtle landscapes. The works bring back memories of past
masters including 19th-century Japanese ukiyo-e artists Hiroshige and Hokusai, as well as
the colorful landscapes of European artists Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin and Vincent van
Gogh. Alejos’ colorful, reductionist geometric forms also elicit the verdant landscapes of
20th century pop artist David Hockney.

“What you see isn´t a “real” nature, it´s what I call a “dreamed landscape,” that is not an
exact copy of a specific place or a photograph, but it is more the feeling that nature (walking
its landscapes with my family at weekends or holidays, studying another painters´artworks,
seeing photos at magazines, or surfing by the net, etc) or music transmits me, that I represent
on the canvas in a symbolic way.”
