Born in 1975, Emil Alzamora is a Peru-born sculptor currently living and working in Beacon, New York. His figurative sculptures explore the human body as he exaggerates, elongates and distorts different parts of the body. Concrete, bronze and gypsum are among the materials he most frequently uses to create the smooth surfaces characteristic to his work.Read More
