The Violinist Mixteco
Aler believes that art should be accessible to all people regardless of their social status. It is for this reason that his main inspiration is the working class. Hardworking people who fight day by day to get ahead. Aler's work is characterized by implicitly carrying a social message that is reflected in the humility and strength of his characters. As Lucio Cabañas, a Mexican schoolteacher and revolutionary, once said: “To be with the people, of the people and among the people”.
