Alex Torres likes to let his painting do the talking. Alex Torres grew up in Santa Barbara and has been creating art for about six years, mostly painting and drawing. He wants his art to show people what he’s feeling at the time he’s making it. Nothing is prepared ahead of time, but whatever comes out, comes out. He never does the same thing twice, ever. The speed and efficiency of spray paint allows him to work fast, capturing whatever is in his mind and putting it into the work. Developing new skills with brush and canvas might change the look of the work, but it remains spontaneous. Alex wants people to get excited about his art, to see something that they have never seen anybody else do; to see an original.
