Jose Alonso Loaiza is a classical, romantic and Renaissance artist. Jose Alonso was never part of a formal art program or training school. Instead he learned from his own personal studies of an art style which appealed to him more than any other, the Italian Renaissance. He cites Michaelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and Da Vinci as his greatest inspirations.
Countless hours were spent poring over texts and picture books related to these artists and their stylistic techniques. More than 35 years of his focused attention has been patiently dedicated to studies of the human body, nature, astronomy and science.
“In respect to 21st century art, the proposal is now more belligerent, more used, a little more daring. But all of life is cyclic, I am sure that we will return to the pillars of art. In my case, painting, we will return to the drawing, to the composition, to a great atmosphere, to a permanent balance of I what I can observe in a painting, a painting that does not simply excite us, but which awakens in us some sensation.” – Jose Alonso Loiaza
