An architect and his artwork
Alex Sahores is an architect, who lives in Buenos Aires and says he paints just for fun.
But for fun or not his artworks, from urban sketches to wonderful watercolors are able to attract us.
He counts with several individual exhibitions, many collective exhibitions and a few awards and publications.
Alex paints mainly urbanscapes, landscapes and figure but always focuses in space more than objects, and he achieves his objective. We recommend to “take a tour” into his large number of paintings in watercolors and sketches.
He has the artist eye, and finds subjets for his paintings in places that go unnoticed to others.
Alex learned watercolor technique from his teachers Eduardo Cervera, Sergio Merayo and Guillermo Roux.
He admires Joseph Zbukvic, Nick Simmons, Alvaro Castagnet, Pedro Cano, and Juankar Cardesin works.
We can find Alex participating in many watercolor sites and forums, showing his watercolors and commenting, a good way to learn.
These are some of the selected artwork to show you today:
“Puerto de Frutos” is a port in Tigre, a town north to Buenos Aires city, but close enough to be a turistic attraction, or for weekends to those who live in Buenos Aires. There are several ways to get there including the known “Tren de la Costa” a scenic turistic way to go. Tigre is also a starting point to know the “Delta del Paraná”.
This is so attractive to Alex marines that here’s another painting depicting the same place
“La Boca” is one of Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods that almost every tourist visits, this is the place of Boca Juniors footbal (soccer) team. It is a turist attraction due to the colorful houses the first Italian sailors built. The pedestrian street “Caminito” and the possibility to listen tango and enjoy it’s dance.
The following is one of these paintings we really don’t know if it shows real houses or not, but what we are certain that you see it and say this is La Boca
The last watercolor painting we want to show you today is one of those wonderful scenes that Alex from time to time show us about Ascochinga, a tranquil place north to Cordoba city
