Alberto Alcantara is a Laramie, Wyoming based fiber artist who creates original Peruvian artwork that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
Fiber artist Alberto Alcantara has worked on ranches in his native Peru and the Western United States for more than 50 years. He learned the art of batik at the Running Cat studio in Laramie. In addition to his work with batik, Alberto's interest in experimentation has led him to create works of surface design using fiber reactive dyes and fabric pens consiting of colorful folk renditions of animals. His Peruvian heritage and keen observation of the animals he has worked with, and the wildlife around him, have strongly influenced his work.
