ArtBeat Studios, located in Royal Palm Square in Fort Myers, will feature artist Alfonso Segovia’s work in January.
Originally from Columbia, Alfonso’s paintings carry the magic of his fiction and non-fiction writings that project his endless dreaming soul.
His work has been presented internationally at businesses, galleries, restaurants and shows in Sao Paulo, Singapore and Italy. His U.S. shows and galleries include those in Chicago, Florida and New York.
Alfonso’s ballerinas are paintings that include vibrant intricate miniature landscapes on their colorful wings. He places the dancers dancing with butterflies, on palm trees, gardens rocks and beaches—always at night under a marvelous starry sky with a shimmering moon.
“The butterflies play a great role in my paintings. My butterflies have a ‘human touch’ without losing their metamorphosis. My butterflies do things that we humans do in our everyday lives, with the help of their proboscis, wings and legs…this is now recognized as Segovia’s Style, says the artist.
Alfonso combines the fantastic stone statues, important pre-Colombian ceremonial center called San Augustin with the city of Teotihuacan in Mexico. His paintings capture the color, texture of the reasonably realistic representation of human figures and various animals, including jaguars, snakes and great birds of San Augustin.
Meet Alfonso at “Meet the Artists” night on Thursday, Jan. 20 from 5 to 7 p.m.
ArtBeat Studios Gallery and Gifts is located at 1400 Colonial Blvd., suite 35, Fort Myers.
