Born Alonso de Alba Bessonnier in Torreón, Mexico in the year 1938, de Alba currently teaches graphic arts at Universidad Iberoamericana in Torreón, Coahuila, Mexico. He is a follower of masters like Klee, Kandinsky, Kelly and Stella and a leader of today’s art into the next century.
De Alba produces stunning modern art prints, mostly etchings, with emphasis on forms and colors often using the process of an inkless intaglio print (relief) as a very effective addition. Other processes involving the press creating small, limited editions include aquatints, woodcuts, chine colles and colographs; each de Alba print is in the tradition of the aesthetically well balanced modern print.
He is a member of the Institute of Culture Council of Torreón and the “El Chanate” Engraving Atelier. Collections and exhibitions include de Alba in most Latin American Counties, France, Canada and the United States.
