3D Murals and Sculptures by Alex Yanes


Alex Yanes is a visual artist born and working in Miami. He has been pursuing art full-time since 2006 but it was evident that this was his true calling when he was only a child. At the age of six, he won his first art contest and built his own tree house at the age of 10. His vibrant and colorful art is inspired by his Cuban roots, skateboard, tattoo, hip-hop, rock culture and Miami city during the 80’s and 90’s. The artist shares on his website: “These days my artistic inspiration derives from the vibrant fixtures of my environment, fatherhood, life’s circumstances, subcultures and the ability to create something out of nothing.”

His art has evolved over the years, besides painting on canvas he creates three dimensional sculptures out of wood and paints them with whimsical characters. The owl (bottom picture) is a massive 30 foot installation created by the artist for the Secret Garden at the Casa Wynwood.

He has worked with well established brands such as Adidas, Red Bull, Sony, The Learning Channel, Vans, Delta Airlines, Coca Cola, Rag & Bone, and more. His work is collected by art enthusiasts, and corporates including Fidelity Investments and Capital One. He has exhibited at many galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Philadelphia, London, Paris, Berlin, Australia and Japan.
