Alejandro's story

Alejandro is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in steel sculptures and wall art. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of metal sheets. Alejandro has been selling through NOVICA since 2008. This is his story:

"From the time I was a boy, I was attracted to art," recalls Alejandro. "When I was 20, I became an ecologist and defender of nature, and this is when I began to create animals in metal. My technique is similar to cutout metal, but more rudimentary. From this, I became inspired and started working in metal for its versatility. Today I have a workshop, a cockatoo named Coco and a cactus collection. Those are all the tools I need to continue working."

"Thank you for believing in me and my work, and for your trust. Your support allows me to continue with this art that fascinates me and motivates me to fight for what I love."
