Albano Alfonso

Site-created Installation

Locust Projects is an alternative exhibition environment dedicated to showing and publicizing powerful, often under-represented projects, located in Miami's 'hottest' new art district. Brazilian artist, Albano Alfonso was selected on their recent Tigertail sponsored trip to São Paulo, Brazil. Albano Afonso's work involves appropriated imagery from Old World masters, paintings, and precise control/manipulation of environmental lighting; popular printed imagery and an atmospheric engagement with the viewer. His work begins, as formal planning in the artist studio, but quickly becomes large site-specific installations. The audience is immersed in an art-experiment, where the conventions of still imagery are expanded into the physical.
