Alissa Alfonso

South Florida artist known for her nature-inspired work in soft sculpture, fused plastic installations, and stuffed textile collages. Alissa Alfonso creates beautiful objects that repurpose the past in order to speak to the future. From hand-dyed, upcycled fabric sculptures modeled after healing plants in her “Nature’s Medicine” collection to her work developing an entirely green, alternative art program called “Off the Canvas” in Broward County schools, Alfonso’s work reveals her passion to preserve natural environments and to reconnect her community with the surrounding abundance. She showcases the work of other artists from around the country through curated pop-up shows in “Squatter,” the 1973 Shasta Compact Trailer she transformed into a mobile art gallery. Alfonso’s work has been shown at Wassaic Project 2020 Summer exhibition, CICA Museum “Contemporary Landscapes” Gyeonggi-do, Korea, and currently at SHOWFIELDS Miami Beach.
