Alexi Torres discusses the relationship between nature and man in a contemporary context emphasizing the interconnectedness of all living things. His works are exceptionally complex, intricately weaving together organic and symbolic elements to create monumental works which challenge the viewer to see beneath the surface into the archetypal qualities of his subjects.
"It works like a proposal to give security through positive joyful fun actions, I used meditation, singing, praying and dancing. There are many levels of consciousness on the world and some of these are low and corrupt. Because of this, we need law enforcement to defend against, deal with and clean up the destructive things that can happen"

"Celebration is the title of a series of ten large oil paintings on canvas, which range in size from 72”x96” to 84”x132”. Each one depicts a large cake decorated with different designs and words associated with interior states of celebration: Forgive, Acceptance, Imagine, Joy, Surrender, Compassion, Oneness, Awareness, Peace, Gratitude. The experience of creating these works was a celebration in itself. I chose the image of the cake, because it has been an integral part of celebrations in Western European culture since the mid-19th century"
