Alexandro García

Uruguay, 1970

The experience of seeing a UFO has triggered García’s creativity. It is without any formal artistic education that Alexandro produced his first creations using a ruler, markers, ballpoint pens and pencils on the materials at his disposal (like the back of an almanac). His work is to be compared to mediumistic art in the sense that, according to him, forces are exerted there of which he is only the instrument: “I am a channel that absorbs the messages of the cosmos”. Alexandro García reveals his ethereal visions to us in meticulously executed drawings mixing fantastic cities, seemingly weightless. They are about an elsewhere offered to our projections and the colonization of a new humanity.
