Alexandre Arrechea was born in Trinidad, Cuba, in 1970. He graduated from the ‘Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA)” in Havana in 1994. For twelve years he was a member of the art collective Los Carpinteros, until he left the group in July of 2003 to continue his career as a solo artist.
The interdisciplinary quality of Alexandre Arrechea’s work reveals a profound interest in the exploration of both public and domestic spaces. This quest has led him to produce several monumental projects like ‘Ciudad Transportable” (2000), ‘The Garden of Mistrust” (2003-2005) and ‘Perpetual Free Entrance” (2006).
