Alejandro Diaz


Based in New York City, Alejandro Diaz is originally from Texas where he developed an exciting and pertinent body of work exemplifying the complex and visually rich cultural milieu particular to South Texas and Mexico. 


Diaz's conceptual, campy and political cardboard signs  - which he began making and selling on the streets of Manhattan in the late 90s - are emblematic of his recurrent use of everyday materials, his humor infused politics, and his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise.  The ongoing cardboard signs series continues to evolve with some of the sayings now being produced in neon.
