About Alan Beloso Castello

I believe that my work is mostly very clean, or minimal, but sometimes can go to the chaotic. I am always reflecting in some way the negative behavior (s) of society, aspects of pop trash, and examples of what I call: “anti valor” but I do this with a pinch of love, thus highlighting a sense of black humor, as my response to what I see around me.

Alan Belloso was born and raised in Maracaibo, Zulia State, Venezuela. He earned a degree in Graphic Design from the Universidad Rafael Belloso Chacin,  in the city of Maracaibo, in 2009. Belloso’s plastic work is unveiled through graffiti, some of which can be still seen in Maracaibo. This urban manifestation was the catalyst for his first group exhibitions – three editions of Arte Unido at the Museum of contemporary art of Zulia (MACZUL). These were followed by his participation in the 3rd Salon of Young Artists in the same museum, The Santa Lucia 2009 evening and the II Festival Iluminados, organized by the French Alliance of Maracaibo. In February 2011, he presented his first solo exhibition, Zape Gato! in the Centro de Bellas Artes Ateneo de Maracaibo. This young artist’s work has been described as “a free art, which has been influenced by the urban graffiti of large cities in his years of residence in the United States and Germany between 1999 and 2005. ” While this is true, it should also be noted that his art was marked, from an early age by iconic elements of the pop culture of his generation, such as the tales of Dr. Seuss, MAD magazine and the Spy Vs. Spy comics.
