Alejandro Magallanes was born in Mexico City 49 years ago. He studied at the National School of Visual Arts of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He plays and works with letters and images, sometimes commissioned by someone and sometimes just for the fun of it. To date, he has written ten children’s books, three poetry books, and several artist books, including his first novel.
He works for the cultural and social areas, and has drawn, painted, assembled, and designed many other books, posters, animations, collages, photos, letters, and images. Three monographs of his work as a designer and poster artist have been published in China, Spain, and Germany. His work has been recognized internationally. Since 2004 he has been a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale. He has received various national and international recognitions, as well as various exhibitions around the world, but he does not want to put them in this profile.
Do not think that a picture is worth a thousand words, since a thousand words combined together create approximately six million images (to say a number). He believes that if any image becomes indelible in your memory, you will not be able to define in words the emotion that it provokes in you.
