A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of steel sheet.

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 steel sheet.

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 very much for your support; your trust allows me to continue sharing my art with the rest of the world."
