"Getting up when you fall down and trying again, never giving up, never quitting. That's what the "crybaby" is about. We all have to take punches in life, this piece is a reminder to get up and dust yourself off.
I wanted to create an image using separate individually painted pieces that tell a story when combined, almost like a jigsaw puzzle. Something that only makes sense when it's joined together." - Alex Yanes
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
When you first meet Alex Yanes
, you are struck by how laid-back and approachable he is. Born in Miami, he is the product of both the ever-evolving, fast-paced city and the burgeoning art scene. Yet, he is as real and approachable as they come. In a city filled with wild characters and over-saturated personalities, Yanes is refreshingly humble, preferring instead to let his vibrant and colorful artwork take center stage.
Since he decided to pursue art full-time in 2006, his work has become his autobiography, speaking volumes about who he is and what he has seen. A son of the city, his story is influenced by his Cuban roots and an ever-growing curiosity about all the things Miami had to offer him during the 80’s and 90’s. Yanes’ work is the result of years spent immersed in skateboard, tattoo, hip-hop and rock culture during his teenage years, but says he felt the stirrings of creativity at a young age. He won his first art contest at age six and claims that one of his greatest accomplishments was building his own treehouse at the age of 10; a feat he accomplished with the knowledge and tools imparted on him by his father and grandfather.
