(1955, Caracas, Venezuela) is an established painter based in Venezuela’s capital city. His work is produced through experimental combinations of figurative shapes and diverse textures and colors.
In his large-scale paintings, Agelvis fuses refined and stylized drawings with a variety of materials, such as oil paints, chalk, varnishes, earth, rust, and glue, among others, to create shiny and often luxuriant surfaces defined by their vibrant palette.
Agelvis took art courses for a period of nearly twenty years, first studying drawing with renowned Venezuelan artist and caricaturist Pedro León Zapata, before advancing to other drawing techniques at the Architecture Faculty of the Central University of Venezuela and then progressing to studying color and light in painting in Cleveland, Ohio.
His work has been exhibited in galleries across the world since the 1980s, and his resumé features shows in Italy, Romania, United States, France, Spain and Sweden.
