About Alejandro Vigilante
The founder of what he calls “the i-Art movement”, Alejandro Vigilante creates humorous and ironic mixed-media works and paintings that draw their subject matter from popular culture. In his “WiFi in the afterlife” series, Vigilante gives voice to iconic figures such as Grace Kelly, Frida Kahlo, and Marilyn Monroe, transferring images of them onto wood, alongside imagined Tweets and social media updates that the figures might have sent in today’s networked culture, and colorful patterns in acrylic paint. “What’s more pop than the internet?” he has asked. Vigilante cites Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg as major influences on his work.
Argentinian, b. 1964, Argentina, based in Miami
