Alexis Zambrano's life long interest in collecting soon informed a passion for creating. Zambrano treats his process of collaging images and juxtaposing objects as a blueprint to help translate his ideas into painting and sculpture.
In his first solo exhibition, Interior Artscapes, Zambrano showcased his art by curating a series of reimagined works that would comprise his personal yet unattainable dream collection. The artist's more recent work displays architectural influences, references to characters across history, and gives found objects new meaning through sculptural form.
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).
