Born in Mexico City, Alonso is a painter who works from observation, often depicting his everyday surroundings and experiences. At College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, Alonso learned the techniques of traditional landscape painting. He subsequently completed courses at The Prince’s Drawing School in London, where he honed his skills in painting from life. Alonso has exhibited in Mexico and currently lives in New York City. He loves making art outdoors, and believes that one is never really finished looking at the world.
