“This exhibition is a raw and powerful exploration whose roots emanate from Alec’s impactful and emotional personal story.

“Something soft brought up in a hard world, the “Concrete Dandelion” survives on its tenacity, wishful thinking, and it’s golden glow. Growing in a desolate environment that promises only struggle; the misunderstood flower grows where other flora would wither and fade.

Knowing only hard-fought days and cold nights, its first taste of fertile soil hits like cool water in a hot desert. Although its roots still know the taste of cement, the newfound flavor of life tastes like yesterday’s dreams. Now with the chance to grow and reach deep within its crooked roots, the “Concrete Dandelion” can share its wishful thoughts and golden glow with the world.”
-Alec DeJesus

Born in Chicago and raised in Peoria, IL, Alec turned to art as a means of escaping a rough upbringing and today focuses on enveloping a very real message of “strength and pride through perseverance” in his vibrant paintings and murals.
