“Fantastic” Artist Joan Alfaro to have Ephemeral Exhibit “Fantasia”


Cajamarquin painter Joan Alfaro, known for captivating Andean Surrealism, will present his latest exhibit, “Fantasia”, at the Indigo Gallery in San Isidro on October 4.

The prominent national artist creates in his paintings a dreamlike universe inhabited by fantastical musicians, old people, children, mothers, and others. His work, noted for its playful and colorful ways, tells the myths that make up the history of Andean peoples, and popular stories.

“Fantasia” will feature 17 unpublished works that capture Cajamarca’s nostalgia, motivate the public to explore in their imagination and allow us to discover or rediscover Peruvian roots from art.
