Alexi Devilliers was
born in the United States and is of Cuban descent. When he was five,
his family settled in Florida. Alexi remembers that even though his
mother had to stretch every dollar, they always had more than enough
home cooked, flavorful food. According to Alexi, "You could taste the
love that went into making it."
Growing up, his
mother taught him the secrets she brought with her from Cuba. He then
learned to cook the same type of homemade comfort meals that so many of
us daily take for granted. He began giving his left over home cooked
meals to his neighbors, and the rest is history.
After working all
week long as a commercial maintenance engineer, every Saturday morning,
Alexi and his wife wake up at 5:30am. They begin to make anywhere from
100 to 150 hot meals, then pack them up and head off to parks to feed
the homeless around Phoenix. Recently they have joined with a shelter
called Just-A-Center on 10th Avenue and Jefferson which aids in the
feeding of people 55 and over.
Using the empty cans
from the meals he's cooked, Alexi then creates steam punk fashion can
artworks. Once he sells a piece, he purchases more food,
makes more meals then reuses those cans to create more
pieces. The pieces created are not only art, they are a recycling of
love, generosity and charity.
