Alex Nuñez is a Cuban-American mixed media painter from Miami, FL. Her works alternate between the floor and the wall, using spontaneous mark-making and bold splashes of color- she layers acrylic paint, glitter, crystals, ink and collaged imagery. Large scale canvases depict an imagined realm of plant life and intertwining carnivorous forms. Anthropomorphic vines conceal and reveal a diaristic scrawl of hidden messages, reflecting on her native Miami backdrop.
Nuñez is the host and producer of the “Sunday Painter” podcast on Jolt Radio, now in the show’s sixth 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 in Little Haiti.
