Self-Portrait by Alejandro Camacho
Drawing, painting, digital art, sculpting, photography, and many other mediums are ways that I like to express my passion for creativity, fine art, illustration, and imagination. I enjoy telling a story with my artwork which is why I studied illustration at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Something that is prevalent in my work is the exaggeration, beauty, and anatomy of the human body. Becoming a visual artist has aspired me to inspire others through my artwork. I love and respect all forms of art, because art is a language people can all understand and use to communicate their actions, emotions, and history with others. After becoming an artist I decided that I could further influence the growth of art by becoming an art teacher, which is what I currently work daily to become better. A teaching-artist is a teacher who is also a practicing artist. I believe this combination is a great balance for me, because I have only become a better artist by teaching art to others. Along the way I have learned more about art skills and art history, because of my pursuit to become a better art teacher.
