Originally from Monterrey, Mexico, Alexis Zambrano awakened an early interest in art through collecting. His interest soon grew into a life-long passion for not only collecting but also for creating. Through a process that begins by collaging images and juxtaposing objects, Alexis Zambrano utilizes these studies as blueprints in order to transalte his ideas into paintings and sculptures.
In his first solo exhibition, Interior Artscapes, Alexis showcased his art by curating a series of pieces that compromises his ideal collections. More recently his works have architectural influences and make reference to characters in different time periods as well as giving found objects new meaning through his work in sculpture.
Alexis Zambrano grew up in Monterrey Mexico. Since 2008, Zambrano has been living and working in New York City where he received a BFA in Architectural Design from Parsons The New School of Design.
Following his studies at Parsons, Zambrano co-founded the jewelry line M. de PHOCAS before changing his primary medium to oil painting in 2013. His passion for collecting carried over into his career and inspired his first solo exhibition, Interior Artscapes. The 14 oil paintings were presented by Insitu Works and showcased at the James Burden Mansion (November 2014).
Zambrano works from his studio in Long Island City, NY. His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in the United States, Mexico and South America. His most recent exhibition, Unknown Grounds was held at Pulse, New York (2015).
