Alexis Zambrano

Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Alexis Zambrano awakened an early interest in art through collecting. His interest soon grew into a life-long passion for not only collecting but also for creating it. By age twelve, Alexis fully immersed himself into the art world and started apprenticing with artists. Aldo Chaparro, Juan Torres and Ximena Subercasauz while living in Mexico. Zambrano followed with a BFA in Architectural Design from Parsons the New School for Design, and has made New York City his home since 2008. In his first solo exhibition, Interior Artscapes, Alexis showcased his art by curating a series of pieces that compromises his ideal collections. Through a process that begins by collaging images from auction house catalogues and juxtaposing them in old European salons, the artist then paints his unique vision of collections that otherwise could never be enjoyed. His second solo-exhibition,  Xerocole Dreams, featured architectural influences and made reference to characters in different time periods.
