Born in Toluca,Mexico in 1980, Alejandro is a multidisciplinary artist who has studied a diverse array of art forms ranging from painting, digital and graphic arts, video animation, installations, to modern design.
His visual arts career began in 1999 with his premier gallery exhibitions throughout London,U.K. Following his instincts in 2002, he moved to the Italian Alps, and soon after, in 2003 he relocated to New York City. It was here that he submerged himself totally into painting and into Manhattan’s thriving art movement. In 2005, he returned to Europe, this time choosing Paris as his home base. For him, the vitality of the Parisian environment was a source of immense inspiration, leading him to develop a more refined and concrete artistic expression. It was also here that he gained notoriety after numerous successful exhibitions.
His first permanent exhibition consisted of over 90 artworks distributed throughout the Mosquito Blue Hotel in Playa del Carmen,Mexico. He currently works and resides in San Francisco, U.S.A. Alejandro's paintings can be best described as a hybrid between his complex personality, and his travel and cultural experiences. His abstract paintings express his deep intuition and certain recurring, incoherent elements of his personality. He defines it as an agitated spontaneity of micro-cosmic ideas changing speed and kinetic energy as brush meets canvas, whereby a certain violence of line and character is revealed with a sense of detailed urgency.
He is perpetually in motion; frequently moving to cities and studios across the globe drawing on adventure and new inspiration. He credits his endless globe-trotting for his astonishing breadth and diversity as an artist - producing paintings, sculptures, collages, motion graphics, digital art, drawings, photography, and video and sound installation works.
Art and life are intrinsically and irrevocably one for Alejandro. A self-described iconoclastic individualist,he has continued to remain elusive to the broad public, despite a steadily growing recognition within certain established art circles. His extensive travels throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Africa have ultimately defined the direction of his work.
Alejandro's paintings reflect the multiple facets of our cultural identities, offering the viewer a very instinctive and subjective glimpse into the diverse communities of our world, and most of all, into the artist provocateur himself - A.B. Tavera.
ABT is one of the closet and most trusted man I met.
Very talented in painting and designing over 20 years of experience.
While he paints, he gets in the groove with some raw underground house music.
