Frankie Alfonso is a Cuban-American artist renowned for his compelling paintings that employ vibrant colors and instinctive, well-balanced compositions. His work is best described as a style of automatic writing where he manipulates simple lines to make complex arrangements of line, color, and shape. His style is a mix of cubism, cartoon animation, surrealism, graffiti, and abstract expressionism.
Alfonso's passion for drawing began in his childhood, drawing inspiration from comic books and unconventional perspectives, and later in his teenage years experimenting with various media, including oil, acrylic, gouache, and spray paint, to explore new possibilities in his art even after 20 years of painting.
Alfonso journeyed throughout Europe after attending art school in Tampa, Florida, and his profound study of European Masters served as the foundation for his artistic philosophy, inspiring him to draw from the works of various artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Paul Klee, Salvador Dali, Jean Michel Basquiat, Willem De Kooning, and Henri Matisse, and his artistic creations have been exhibited in Florida and California and collected across the US.
