My name is Andres Alfonso aka Afar25 and I'm an artist currently based in Los Angeles, California. It all started as a little kid, I was fortunate enough to have parents that supported my dreams. At the age of 6, I was very clear as to what I wanted to be as an adult, that was to be an artist. As a teenager skateboarding came into my life and it focused my attention to graphic design. I've been working as a Graphic and Web Designer for over a decade and I'm currently the UI Digital Design Manager at Educational Insights.
I like to create in whichever which way I can. I draw, paint, sculpt, mold, cut, sew, carve, and more. Constantly experimenting and pushing myself to try and learn new things. I like to humanize animals and present them with style and flare, and more times than not in a street lifestyle setting. Skulls, diamonds, floating heads, animal hats, birds, etc. are guides into the spiritual world and often lead my characters on a righteous path.
