Artistic Profile

Alexis Henriquez was born on November 13th, 1965. He studied at the National School for the Fine Arts in Honduras and he is an architect. Henriquez started to paint in the nineties. He uses pastels, watercolor and acrylics to produce his art.

“As an artist, I like to see and create works that inspire, that tell a story that is engrossed on its surroundings.”

 “During my childhood I had the pleasure to grow up in my hometown Tegucigalpa which lively streets sparked my imagination and desire for painting. My work is dedicated to the poor. It is with them that I was born as an artist and where I have found a place of truth and loyalty to my origins.”

Usa el pastel, la acuarela y los acrílicos para trabajar sus obras. Actualmente reside en Pigeon Forge, TN, desde donde crea su arte.
