Alberto Chailosky is a Florida-based sculpture artist who has been making artwork for more than 30 years. A graduate of RISD and NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Chailosky has had an extensive career in the arts as a sculpture artist, graphic designer, and art director, including 11 successful years as a set designer for various Broadway shows and Saturday Night Live. Chailosky’s intricate small-scale replicas of places tied to his past are both dynamic and visually stunning. Debuting at BIG ARTS, Chailosky’s new series, Lost but Not Forgotten, consists of miniature, mixed-media, sculptures that depict important places of Chailosky’s past that, sadly, no longer exist, due to years of gentrification. However, the memories and stories that these places held will remain forever within these works. The hope is that by memorializing them in sculpture, their cultural impact is preserved.
