centro cultural tina modotti Alfredo Candela
Alfredo Candela was born in Alcoy (Alicante), Spain in 1959.
He commenced his first painting studies at the School of Fine Arts in Alcoy, then moved to Valencia. It was here where he developed his preference for marine subjects, which have grown to become his signature genre. Alfredo dominates the canvas- both in cool tones and the warmest hues that one can observe at Spain’s bright and luminous marinas. Now working in sculptural media and acrylic, he has recently started adding a 3-dimensional element to each canvas to further expresses his vibrant and joyful life on Spain’s coast.
Despite his age, Alfredo is still studying at the University of Valencia- always building on his artistic skills. Working with astute professors as well as young, forward- thinking artists, Alfredo continues to evolve the focus of his work.
Upon his first steps as an artist Alfredo, took part in over 100 national and regional exhibitions in his country. Currently his work adorns cultural centers, banks and official institutions in both Spain and Mexico.

Il Centro Cultural Tina Modotti è oggi una delle realtà più interessanti, in Sud America, fra le tante che si occupano di cultura e che, soprattutto, hanno un riferimento più o meno diretto con l’Italia. Il Centro nasce su iniziativa di Antonio Nazzaro, poliedrica figura di intellettuale, da quasi vent’anni trasferitosi nei paesi del Sud America e dell’America Centrale, dove, fra Messico e Venezuela, ha dato vita a numerosissime iniziative diventando un punto di riferimento per chi ama la poesia, l’ arte, la bellezza e la cultura.
