In this clip a brief documentary on Alex Yanes as he prepared for an exhibition in New York City:
Yanes has been very successful as a commercial artist and illustrator working with such internationally renown brands as the The Learning Channel, Kidrobot, Red Bull, and Adidas.
Alex Yanes’ style is a mixture of wonderful design with a great emphasis on text. His work also happens to be a great example of modernist sculpture. I find his work to remind of Vernor Panton. Panton’s furniture and even two dimensional works seem to vibrate with energy due to his use of color.
Yanes use of color and design in his letters reminds of contemporary street artist Ben Eine. Both artists due a great job at making letterforms visually entertaining and fun to look at.
