Alejandro Vigilante is a Miami-based multimedia painter who is in the process of developing a new strain of Neo-Pop art, loosely titled "i-Pop" or sometimes referred to as "iArt".
Creating a new media reflecting the instant information exchange and image dilution made possible by the popularity of social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, Vigilante seeks to advance the critical role of these online worlds in the physical bodies of artworks.
Vigilante began his artistic career as a muralist, having worked with filmmaker Oliver Stone in designing work for his film "Any Given Sunday", the Jackson Memorial Hospital's United Foundation for AIDS, and Tiffany & Company's 2nd floor jewelry salon in New York City. Vigilante and his work have been featured in numerous publications, including Whitewall Magazine, MIAMI Magazine, Daily Candy, The Miami Herald, La Nacion (Argentina) and Ocean Drive.
Born 1964 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Lives and works in Miami.
