Bio

Alex Fuentes, better known as Los Fokos, is an illustrator and graphic designer. Born and bred in Los Angeles, he survived his youth by consuming equal doses of comic books, graffiti, art nouveau, the metaphysical and slasher B-movies. This mix of influences helped pave his path as a self taught artistic chameleon. His ability to shift gears and illustrate in a variety of styles and media has given him the opportunity to create artwork for companies worldwide and be featured in numerous publications and galleries.

Alex’s work carries itself, coinciding, on a fine line between personal projects and corporately commissioned ventures.

His muse (his vibrant children) and the lingering impact of nostalgia continues to drive and expand the visual language in Alex’s personal and commercial work. Pushing himself further into a world where animals never go extinct; A place where honest giddiness and childlike curiosity is never scarce.
