I recently spoke with Bishop203, about an upcoming event taking place on Friday April 12, 2013 at Low Brow Artique featuring artist Alexander Yanes. Bishop203 says that being excited about this event is an understatement.

When you first meet Alex Yanes, you are struck by how laid back, real, and approachable he is. Born in Miami, he is the product of both the ever-evolving, fast-paced city and the burgeoning art scene. In a city filled with wild characters and over-saturated personalities, Yanes is refreshingly humble, preferring instead to let his vibrant and colorful artwork take center stage.

And it does.

Since he decided to pursue art full-time in 2006, his work has become his autobiography, speaking volumes about who he is and what he has seen. A son of the city, his story is influenced by Cuban roots and an ever-growing curiosity about all the things Miami had to offer him during the 80’s and 90’s.

Yanes’ work is the result of years spent immersed in skateboard, tattoo, hip-hop and punk-rock culture during his teenage years.

Opening Reception - April 12th, 2013 from 6pm -10pm
