Biography / Alex Yanes

Street artist Alex Yanes is known for his vibrant and colorful artworks that he draws from his main inspirations. His Cuban roots, his hometown Miami and skateboard-culture, his unique and colorful works come in three-dimensional shapes of intricate detail.

From skateboard ramps and tree house forts as a kid to lively artistic objects today: Miami artist Alex Yanes has always had a hands-on approach to his cultural surroundings. He creates intricate objects that incorporate a multitude of cultural references, all brought together with an ironic twist in three-dimensional objects that almost remind of pop-up books. Alex Yanes’ work process is complex, consists of many different steps and is as essential to the artist as the finished objects themselves. Conceptual art? Maybe, but definitely the art of bringing together contemporary cultural moments.
