Niterói, Brazil, 1983.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2018 nominee.

He has a BFA in Painting and is currently pursuing a PhD in Visual Languages at the School of Fine Arts of UFRJ, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In his works, he proposes negotiations between his daily life and his artistic practice – investigates the possibilities of articulation between day-to-day experience and painting. Alonso experience fields of action for colour, shape and gesture at the same time in which he does not remove the painting from his critical model of reflecting on his time and place.
