“Rust is as natural to metal, as is a Melody to music.”
Alex was born in the rural town of Decatur, Indiana. Alex’s background is in music, having studied classical methods for guitar, he continues currently as a working musician. This musical background has influenced his journey into metal sculpture. Alex has been drawn to abstract forms because he believes this provides a way to portray what a musician might visualize in sculpted art.
For four years Alex has worked as an apprentice with his brother, sculptor Greg Mendez. He has made an effort to understand all aspects of sculpture; including concept, design, sculpting and installation, and is now creating his own unique sculptures. Each new sculpture Alex creates is a progression of his musical and artistic abilities that he hopes will be enjoyed by all.
