Alex Nuñez is a Cuban-American mixed media painter from Miami, FL. Her works alternate between the floor and the wall, using meticulous mark-making and bold splashes of color- she layers acrylic paint, glitter, crystals, ink and collaged imagery. Each canvas reflects on her native Miami backdrop weaving imagined plantlife and carnivorous forms.

Nuñez is the host and producer of the “Sunday Painter” podcast on Jolt Radio, now in the show’s fifth year of production and a recipient of Locust Project’s Wavemaker Grant. She received her MFA from Hunter College, City University of New York and was awarded the C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship. She is currently a resident artist at the Fountainhead Studios.
