About: My art is always changing, always evolving. I believe that repetition is the mother of perfection so I aim to create as much as I can whenever and wherever I am. I love creating representational art, and currently, I am really enjoying mixing references from real life with images with my imagination. To me, the melange of real with imagined feels like adding my own flavor or lens to life.
Alejandro Sarmiento is an artist who specializes in acrylic painting and drawing. He began his artistic journey at a young age, drawing on any surface he could find and filling his school notebooks with doodles. Mostly self-taught, Alejandro further developed his skills with a few years of formal art training at Lane Community College in his mid-twenties. Today he continues to learn and evolve his craft through daily practice, interacting with other mediums and artists, and independent research of techniques and best practices. Alejandro has created artwork for local and city projects, in both the private and public sectors, including large-scale murals, custom portraits, logos, and collaborative pieces. After eight years of working as a paid professional artist, Alejandro opened his own art business in 2020 where he continues to create commissioned work and teaches art classes for both novice and experienced painters.
