About the Artist:
When Alex Velázquez was a child, he imagined magical worlds for his own enjoyment, realms of natural wonder and fantastical creatures. Now living in Los Angeles and working as a textile artist, Alex creates these magical creatures with which he grew with is art, dedicated to adding ever more magic to this world in their sculptural manifestation. Drawing reference from forms in nature and plant mythology, he transforms fabric into figures with such realism its often hard to tell they were not just plucked from the outdoors.
