H. Alex Santurio - 'Star Lights'

H. Alex Santurio, a self-taught, award winning artist, was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and migrated to New York in 1973. Since he was a young boy he had a fascination with art. Oil was always his favorite medium. In 1980 he moved to California and was taken by its beautiful landscapes, unique buildings and many bridges. Utilizing a pallet knife instead of brushes, and his unique style he places these inspirations on canvas. If you look closely you will see his other inspirations; three birds representing his children that appear in mostly all of his paintings. In this series he experiments with metal, wood, plastic, glass and Styrofoam to enhance the texture of his pieces.
