Alexandre graduated from Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA) in Havana in 1994.

His work comprises large-scale installations, sculptures, watercolour drawings, and videos that debate such issues as history, memory, politics, and the power relations of the urban space.

His mode of working site specifically makes him explore the ideological and philosophical legacy of the surrounding context to create a more engaging interaction with the audience.

His exploration of space contemplates cultural resonances implicit in architecture, from design to social value, and how these condition its multiple readings.

He is internationally renowned as one of the founding members of the Cuban collective, Los Carpinteros [The Carpenters], active between 1991 and 2003.

Embarking on his solo career in the same year, Arrechea is widely recognised for No limits (2013), a monumental project composed of ten sculptures inspired by iconic buildings in New York City and erected along Park Avenue, and Katrina Chairs (2016), erected at the Coachella Music Festival, Palm Springs, California, USA.

Last December, he created Dreaming with Lions, an immersive rotunda resembling an enormous forum-cum-library installed at Faena Miami Beach.
