About Alexandre Monntoya
Alexandre Montoya was born on the 16th of January 1974, Roldadillo (Valle), Columbia. He studied drawing at INEM, in the city of Pereira. In 1994 he opened a small gallery in the city of Cali. He began to be more involved in his drawings when he had more contact with other artists in this region. Each day he felt more motivated to paint. Alexandre says, it was because he knew that he had a gift with the paint brush and his heart swelled with happiness and peace when he was painting night after night. Alexandre participated in some exhibitions and when he was 24 years old he won first prize of "Young Artist of the Year" in his region Vallecaucano, Columbia. In 2001 he decided to close his gallery in Columbia and move to Spain, where he still resides, to grow and develop his work as an artist.
