I’m Alex Zapata, a Chicano artist born in California, now living and working in Houston, TX utilizing the streets as a gallery. Different mediums allow me to depict different messages. The lowrider culture, activism, indigenous imagery, and social justice inspire my work. I believe the art we surround ourselves with has a huge impact on our emotions. With my art I hope to evoke a sense of pride and familiarity. Through strong female figures and a monochrome pallet I am focused on creating bold and pride inspiring work showcasing my childhood memories, identity, and heritage.
