Emil Alzamora, a British Citizen, was born in Lima, Peru in 1975 and grew up in Boca Grande, Florida and Majorca, Spain. He attended Florida State University where he graduated Magna cum Laude in 1998 earning a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. Alzamora harnesses a wide range of materials and techniques to deliver unexpected interpretations of the sculpted human figure. He often distorts, elongates, deconstructs, or encases his forms to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story. Alzamora's keen interest in the physical properties of his materials combined with his hands-on approach allow for the process to reveal and inform at once the aesthetic and the conceptual.

Alzamora started his sculpting career in the Hudson Valley of New York working with Polich Tallix in the fall of 1998. Since his departure from the art foundry in early 2001, he has produced his work full-time and shown regularly throughout the world. Alzamora's works have been exhibited in multiple solo and group shows, many national and international art fairs as well as the Knoxville Museum of Art, The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, the United Nations Building, Pepsico World Headquarters, The Queens Museum of Art, The Hudson Valley Museum of Contemporary Art, and The Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas. His work has been reviewed by publications such as The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, The L Magazine, El Diario, Boston Metro News, Juxtapoz, High Fructose, ArteFuse and Cool Hunting. He currently lives and works in Beacon, NY.
