Alejandro Abal

I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay on 15th of July in 1966, where I live today. - I start creating writing. I write poems and tales since 1983, when I was finishing high school, only for my closer friends and family. Actually I am a self made plastic artist. Since near 2000 I started drawing at downtown squares near my work office, I draw buildings, city landscapes, specially the front of old buildings, because here in Montevideo there is a special architecture. There are very nice Art Nouveau and Art Deco examples. I enjoyed very much doing this, I felt very free doing something for myself. Really I was surviving a very deep depression state. Well, my first technique was mixed: pencil, pencil colors on paper and watercolors, plus ink for strong lines. - After that, I started to experiment with acrylic, which I didn´t liked, but I`m just waiting the chance to learn well about how to handle it. So I took the oil painting on carton, paper, canvas, wood, whatever I can say that my best influence, which is my best reference, is constructivism and geometric composition. My favorite is Joaquin Torres Garcia. I like his works very much. - I like works by Klee, Kandinsky, Miró, Picasso, and many more. I prefer abstract paint first of all. I respect and value all the works of all my colleagues no matter their styles. All we are brothers searching for a way in the same universe, just with different eyes, because we can´t be all the same. Now i am studying at Torres Garcia Museum, where I am learning about composition on the plane, colour, and " acrylic" .- In 2013 i started a new course about creative process and development of creative proyects .- The development of a creative project from something inpensado, different, represents a breakdown of previous preconceptions. Everything created before, does not have to perform any kind of pattern on the new creation, except everything that contributes to solidify one way or creative own style, with which one can identify, it means to see one self on  it.
