One of today’s most radical ways of humanizing and embracing conflict is rapidly emerging in the arts. Peruvian Painter Alonzo Vega expresses his medium through staple war materials, such as guns, shrapnel, shell cases, and even gas masks, resulting in mosaics that connote the pain, passion, and suffering overcome by many to substantiate human rights and the conditions of our current world order.
Vega attributes his unique perspective to his great grandfather, General Harold Lee George, an American War Hero during World War II, who went on to found Howard Hughes Pan Am Airways in Peru. Lee George was honored with a historic cover of Time Magazine. In honor of the heroic General, Vega has continued his family’s tradition of valiant courage, trailblazing a brand new lane in the arts that is becoming more and more popular amongst collectors, galleries, and the media alike
