Mexican-born artist Alberto Velazquez’s paintings reverberate with an energy that awakens the spirit and stimulates the intellect. His profound body of work is a visual that reflects a wide-range of life experiences including his original observations of human nature. Drawing artistic influence and brilliant color palette from his Mexican heritage, Velazquez’s distinctive abstract works shimmer with an organic essence and universal appeal. His paintings speak to the viewer through purity of shape and color, transcending time and place, and expressing the artist’s spirituality outside the realm of organized religion. With each ambient work, Velazquez invites the viewer in to see inside his infinite imagination, to explore conceptual themes like fertility, emotion, piety and self-reflection.
A self taught artist who has independently studied the works of revolutionary Mexican painters like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Alberto Velazquez began painting seriously at the age of 22. Since then he has produced over 300 works, participating in group and solo exhibitions in Mexico and Canada. The artist lives and works in Ontario, Canada.
