About the Photographer

Born in Cienfuegos, Cuba May 26, 1950, Felipe Segundo Avello migrated with his family to the Unites States in 1963 after Castro's revolution. Once in the Unites States, he grew into a native New Yorker, graduating from The City College of New York with a Bachelor's degree in Art and subsequently earning a Masters of Fine Arts in 1976.  At City College, he was fortunate to study sculpture under the tutelage of well-renown artist like Charles Salerno and Juan Nickford.

During his graduate studies, Avello was a member of the Winter Gallery in Soho, New York. He had his first one – man show of both drawings and sculptures in 1974, and went on to participate in several group shows over the next few years. In 1976, he was invited to participate and compete in the Audubon Artist's Society Annual Show, placing second with a sculpture piece carved out of African Wonder Stone entitled “Siamese Twins.”

Since then, Avello's work exhibit regularly at Jadite Galleries in New York City, and locally he was featured at Gallery 101 in Fort Lauderdale. Currently, he has a permanent studio at Futurama Gallery in Little Havana.

Avello's initial artistic inspirations include the great painters and Sculptors of the 20th century, such as Picasso, Calder, Pollack, Klee, and Brancusi. Is current photography inspirations include local artist, Clyde Butcher and well–known greats such as Lee Friedlander and Bill Brandt. While inspired by these larger–than–life creators, Avello's true aspiration is to simply create art that is aesthetically accessible to everyone.
