A Look Into Genius..
Born and bred in L.A, this illustrator/graphic designer/visual innovator is pushing the limits to what we define as “Art.” Alejandro Fuentes‘, a.k.a Los Fokos, a.k.a Dad to his pre-teen daughter, is a self taught artist whose illustrations have landed him clients such as Adidas, Nike, Target, Random House, Walmart and many more exceptional Corporations/Independent labels.
By day, Los Fokos earns his cash by being an illustrator and graphic designer, but by night, when his creative juices start flowing, he “plugs away on personal and contracted projects reflecting (his) utmost passions.” As the reader can surely see from his illustrations, Los Fokos has no problem separating himself from reality to create images that are original, uninhibited, and bordering on the lines of the metaphysical. He has no qualms with expressing a thought or emotion and because of this, his vivid illustrations forever leave a mark on the observer.
“My life long interest for the metaphysical, the surreal, nostalgic memories, and most importantly my kids has been a heavy influence in my art. I don’t mind the abstract or the mundane, whether in life or in art…but in the end it needs to make sense in my heart and eventually in your retinas. I enjoy what I do. I do it well and I strive to keep my aesthetics in order.” -Los Fokos
