Alex Hornest – AKA: ONESTO (1972) is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in São Paulo: a city that inspires him and leads him to reflect on urbanity as well as on playful and introspective themes.
He produces his work focusing on the relationship between cities and their inhabitants using techniques such as painting, sculpture, collage, photography, and audio- visual media.
In his compositions, the combination of these elements results in textures and contrasts where colors are not the key element to the interpretation of what his work proposes. The characters of his imagination are transiting in situations that can be interpreted as fact or fiction within a lyrical universe in between chaos and agitation from which they are removed, always trying to propose a possible interaction between the work and spectator.
