Spring 2019-20 Artist-in-Residence
Alonsa Guevara is a Brooklyn based artist. She was born in Rancagua, Chile. Her paintings blur the lines between fantasy and reality while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature. A big part of her inspiration derives from her memories especially of her childhood spent living in the Ecuadorian rainforest with her family.
Alonsa received her BFA from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile in 2009 and moved to New York in 2011. She was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant in 2013 while being at the MFA Program of the New York Academy of Art, and after graduating, she received the Academy's Fellowship award 2015.
Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC Magazine, VICE and more, and has been shown internationally including countries like China, Mexico, Chile and many states inside the USA. Her most recent solo show was in May 2018 at Anna Zorina Gallery in NYC.
