Al­fonso asks you to read be­tween the lines of his art – a night­mar­ish body of work full of writhing, skin­less fig­ures and twisted, grin­ning skele­tons.

“I’m a lover of com­po­si­tion, com­plex­ity, spa­ces full of de­tails and stun­ning light,” he says. “All of my work has el­e­ments of sur­re­al­ism and Baro­quein­spired light – a use of tene­brism.”

The young artist stud­ied il­lus­tra­tion at Cara­cas In­sti­tute of De­sign and splits his time be­tween his na­tive Venezuela and Span­ish cap­i­tal Madrid. He cites Diego Velázquez and Car­avag­gio as his big­gest in­spi­ra­tions, but his in­ter­pre­ta­tion of anatomy is, “more emo­tional than sci­en­tific. A break­down of al­most the­atri­cal ex­pres­sions.”
