My name is Alex B. Valdez III born in Chicago 1987. That was easy. Now for the most complicated part since I am unable to classify myself as a specific artist. So for now a visual artist would be suffice. I mostly paint and design t- shirts right now but I also: graphic design, animate, video edit, draw, play guitar, and sing - a little "cough cough." I go where my art leads me: through emotions, through circumstances good/bad, through spiritual growth, and through times where I don't want to do art. Action is required first then motivation happens; I am a firm believer in that regard. I will honor God with all that I do; and all the glory goes to Him since He is the one who allowed Art to find me. Most people in life never find out their true purpose. I'm just thankful and blessed that I found mine.
