Born 1986, Rancagua, Chile
Lives and works in Los Angeles, California

Alonsa Guevara holds an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art (2014), and a BFA from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (2009).

Guevara works primarily with painting, and her multidisciplinary practice extends to sculptures, installations, sound pieces, and video performance. Her works blur the lines between fantasy and reality while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature. As a Latin-American woman whose life has unfolded across three distinct countries—Chile, Ecuador, and the USA—Guevara's art serves as an exploration of questions surrounding identity, belonging, and womanhood, offering her personal understanding and appreciation of beauty.

She has been awarded numerous grants and residencies including the Muralist Award, for LAMI & San Pedro Waterfront Arts District in San Pedro, CA, the Tashkeel Art Residency in Dubai, the Eric Fischl ’66 Artist-in-Residence Teaching Program at WNA, USA, the NYAA Fellowship Award, and the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant.

Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC, VICE, and The National News UAE, among others and has exhibited internationally, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, Southampton Arts Center, New York, Cheng Xi Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China and Museum of Visual Arts, Santiago, Chile. Her most recent solo show Counting Leaves was in 2023 at Tashkeel Gallery Alserkal, in Dubai.
