Osvaldo Lobalzo, an Argentinian artist living in Spain, is an extremely inspiring master of his own profession. Standing in front of his work one can understand the question and answer, it is so difficult to star indifferent and unexcited. Osvaldo's art simply rises a positive emotion and takes us to a different dimension.
During his career, which has spanned five decades Avellano has worked in many different techniques and styles: creating drawings, watercolours, oils, enamels, acrylics, photography, digital imaging, sculpture, installation, projections, interactive works and found objects.
In 2010 he held a retrospective exhibition in his hometown Gibraltar. Avellano has been commissioned to create public art in Manchester and Lancashire, and portraits of leading politicians in Gibraltar.
He was awarded the British Millennium art award in 2000. He also achieved both first and second prizes in Blands centenary photographic competition in 2009.
One of his best known works, "The Triumphal Welcome" was on display in the Main Guard building in John Mackintosh Square, which is the main square of Gibraltar. The painting commemorates an event in that same square in 1963, after chief minister Sir Joshua Hassan and Peter Isola returned from meetings with the UN Committee, in New York, when they declared that Gibraltar would stay British.
After a rewarding and successful teaching career I took early retirement to fulfil my ambition to become a professional artist working from my own studio in the North of England and in a studio I have in Canada.
Several years ago I joined NEO Artist Print Studio;I work there most days producing etchings based on my research and travels. I like to work from life, developing unique interpretations of human and natural form.
My main passion is for drawing, drawing helps me understand the world I live in and is a natural progression to etching. My favourite material to etch on is copper but I do use zinc and solar plates are ideal for any collage based designs.
During my career I have been in many exhibitions: Society of Women Artists, Mall Galleries, The Royal Birmingham, Manchester Academy and many others. My most notable commission was for Diana, Princess of Wales.
I have recently been awarded full membership of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, and Society of Women Artists. I received the Barbara Tate Award in the 153rd SWA Annual Exhibition.
