Continuing a family tradition of self-taught artists, Alejandro Silva has recently unified his creative expressions in photography, graphic design, and music into an all-encompassing passion: Painting. This multidisciplinary approach has allowed him to draw from a variety of different areas to create bold new forms.
Alejandro’s zeal for action painting, focusing on brush strokes, color, and texture, is influenced by both his Costa Rican mother’s work in fibers and textiles and his Ecuadorian father’s oil painting. Music has always been his muse when painting; at times dictating the strokes and colors in an almost tangible meditative process. Some of the structural design or graffiti-like elements in Alejandro’s paintings also hint at his highly developed architectural background.
With over 30 years of experience in the AEC industry, Alejandro Silva’s career and experience in the United States and GCC covers all major facets of the industry including Architecture, Modular Design, Construction, Design-build, Project Management, BIM, & Visual Communications. In addition to his extensive Professional experience, he also served as an Adjunct Professor at his alma mater, The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in the United States for more than 7 years, providing him with a critical background and connection to academia and research in the AEC industry.
Armed with a Masters in Architecture, experience in multiple design typologies and materials, and a robust work ethic, Alejandro combines his expertise in Architectural Design, emerging technologies, and construction methods to bring buildings and projects to life in a cutting edge fashion.
