Beautiful, but almost painful to imagine their execution! Cuban-born artist Alexi Torres doesn’t just do the simple oil on canvas portrait; he makes each work appear as if he weaves the paint onto the canvas. Torres’s works are an answer to his own appreciation of Earth’s needs: “The intricate patterns and details in the paintings show the fulfillment that we find in basic organic elements; on how we are all interconnected with each other, on a spiritual and physical level. The past influences the present and the present influences the future. We need each other to evolve with the universe. I want to fill the connection of nature in my works.” Take a look at Torres’ complex, woven creations in our gallery below or check see more from this site.
