The Art of Alex G

Presenting Artist, Instructor Alex Gallardo  

 

 “The Art of Alex G”

 

For as long as Gallardo can remember, art has been a part of his life.

His love for art began with drawing and sketching, then gradually moved to include other media, such as oil, acrylics, airbrush, and tattooing.

          Gallardo’s current body of work is a culmination of many ideas, from political to personal.

His artistic experiences have provided an outlet for emotional expression and have aided him in numerous facets of his life, including his personal relationships.

          Gallardo’s passion for art provides him the opportunity to teach painting and drawing in the California Department of Corrections.

He assumed he would inspire inmates, but discovered that he is the one who is inspired.  He feels fortunate to offer state inmates the experience of painting.

          “For some, art is a hobby, but it offers much more.  When one is living a monotonous existence or at a dire moment in life, this tool can serve many purposes, from a pleasurable pastime to a rehabilitation tool.  Adopt a hobby and apply a form of expressionism to your life, or just try something new and different.

The possibilities are endless and the personal gain is immeasurable!”
