Gerardo Alexis Dos Diaz is a freelance Illustrator based out of Pennsylvania. He began his education at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design and later transferred to The University of the Arts located in Philadelphia. Born in Uruguay, his interest in drawing and painting began there and only grew stronger after relocating to the United States in 2001. His passion for illustration partly stemmed from his interest in video games and anime. As Alex immersed himself further into the art world, the Art Nouveau and Baroque movements became crucial influences in his work.
