JUAN MANUEL ALONSO

Born in Cuba, Juan Manuel Alonso grew up and spent a large portion of his life in New York City. Following graduation from CCNY and The Fashion Institute of Technology, he taught design at F.I.T., Miami Dade, College of Fine Arts, FIDM and Design and Architecture.

Through his career Juan has been associated with major design houses such as Tiffany’s, Nino Cerruti, and Willi Smith to name only a few.

His extensive travels throughtout Europe, the Middle East, India, and Asia have had a major influence on his artistic sensibilities. After driving across country from Miami, Juan settled in Palm Springs where he currently lives with Nynja, his exotic Xoloitzcuintli, while continuing his art, mentoring students and volunteering for Desert AIDS Project.

“I pluck ideas like fields of wild flowers from North Africa to the thrift shops of the West Coast. I arrange objects how I see them in my imagination. What I see in objects is their beauty not their value. Arranging them is what makes them worthy of their beauty.”
