Many major media outlets call him “the bad boy of contemporary art.” Micro economic challenges for pop culture icons and their own personal ancestry, all he did was just a separate class.
Alonzo is inspired by his hobbies, which are shooting, riding a motorcycle, boating, playing the piano, playing squash and golf. Sharpening his senses, he materializes his art in his painting studio. However, we believe that his great-grandfather, an American war hero, General Harold Lee George, who once appeared on the cover of Times magazine, was elected mayor of Beverly Hills and launched Howard Hughes Pan Am Airways in Peru, had a significant role in his artistic works, because Alonzo paints on bullets and fences, artificial barriers that Alonzo constantly challenges.
The artist uses real war materials like bullets, empty boxes, and shrapnel to create evocative expressionist pieces that show turbulence.
