What is art? Since it ceased to be used solely to represent reality, art has been mutating for decades. A concept in permanent movement that today — as it could not be otherwise — is also crossed by the Internet and social networks. Alejandro Vigilante is Argentine and is one of the precursors of i-Pop .
What distinguishes Alejandro Vigilante from other artists is that he does not require the real space to expose his work: his virtual paintings are furor in the world. In his works, he combines digital art and traditional painting on canvas . He is the founder of the i-Art movement.
He was born in Palermo (Buenos Aires) in 1964, but has been based in the United States since decades. Long before others, he discovered that the future of art was in multimedia . His works have the pop imprint of the 1960s and 70s, and his artistic experience goes from traditional to digital. The i-Art movement includes, in addition to social networks , blogs, e-mails, chats and web pages. His works are born on the screen and then go to the canvas . Design virtual frames using Photoshop, which then materializes through the image transfer technique.
The artist's works go around the world. He exhibited his collections in galleries in Buenos Aires , New York, Punta del Este, Miami , Barcelona, Los Angeles, Mexico and Amsterdam , among other cities. Great personalities are fans of his work: Michael Jordan, Lady Gaga, Gloria Estefan, Halle Berry are some of them.
With the pandemic , exposures are slowing down. But this is not an impediment to Alejandro Vigilante , who moves like fish in the water on social networks . He continues to work, create and be a furor among his followers with his virtual paintings .
It is worth taking a walk around and knowing what it is all about.
