Emil Alzamora was born in 1975 in Lima, Peru and was raised in Boca Grande, Florida, where he attended state university and graduated with a BFA magna cum laude in 1998. He started his sculpting career in 1998 in collaboration with Polich Art Works in Hudson Valley. Since his departure in early 2001 he has worked full-time on his sculptures and exhibited regularly across the United States.
“The human form is a constant within my work. I often exaggerate or distort it to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story”, writes the artist. “Limitation and potential are as human as the flesh. I strive to make this comparison visible.”
