Born in 1996 in Cuba, Alejandra Glez's artistic journey began as a self-taught artist. She embarked on her artistic path without formal training, relying on her innate talent and curiosity. Her studies took her to Madrid, Spain, where she continued to hone her craft. Growing up, she explored various forms of artistic expression and discovered her passion for challenging stereotypes associated with the female body.


Alejandra's work is a testament to her commitment to breaking societal norms. She draws inspiration from Afro-Caribbean religions, exploring themes of spirituality, collective memory, and the profound connection between humans and the sea. In her artistic practice, she employs a variety of mediums and techniques, 

including photography, video art, digital art, installation, and performance. This versatility allows her to convey her ideas in diverse and compelling ways, pushing the boundaries of traditional artistic expression. Alejandra Glez's artistic journey is an inspiring testament to the limitless potential of self-expression. Her work challenges norms, sparks dialogue, and invites viewers to engage with the rich tapestry of human existence through the lens of art. Alejandra's innovative approach to art has garnered attention both nationally and internationally. Some of her standout projects exhibited in: Afro-Brazilian History and Culture Museum (Brazil), Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum (Spain), Aurora Vigil-Escalera Gallery (Spain), Acacia Gallery in Havana (Cuba), Arsenale venue of the Venice Biennale (Italy), XIII Havana Biennial (Cuba), ENAIRE Foundation (Spain), Winner of the VI ENAIRE Foundation Young Photography Award, and participant in the PHotoESPAÑA 2021 Festival.
