Today we’d like to introduce you to Alonzo Von Threet.

Alonzo, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I love being an original, creative artist since I was a child. Now I’m 55 and still love It. Art has always been a natural part of who I am so I don’t separate different forms of art from what I am capable of. I work with any medium I can get my hands on. So, whether it’s charcoals, cameras, animation, sculpture, paints or cinematography, I make Art with it. With that said, it’s easy to see why I have worked for fortune 500 companies as a computer graphics specialist in NYC and also have had digital sculpture that I crafted in National Fine Art Museums in Taiwan. It’s all art which a natural part of life is.

Currently I work independently in Buffalo NY where I also live. I always considered Buffalo NY fertile ground for growth, so I returned here after living 15 years in NYC. I went to NYC to become an illustrator in 1987 but I needed more time so I got a job as Canon Color Laser operator. Shortly Macs where connector to the copier and I learn every software app I could find. Eventually I became a tech at a college lab but I knew so many cutting-edge programs that I got hired as an Adjunct Professor. My art was the driving force behind my accelerated learning. I wanted to do what I could do with a paintbrush just the same as inside a computer. It took decades for the digital tools to reach that point but now that time has arrived and I am here with it. It’s a joy to be part of that evolutionary experience and I feel blessed to achieve many of my creative visions. However, in order to realize my vision, I study, practice and invest heavily into state of the technology like Red cameras, motion capture systems and artificially intelligence software. My goals are creative, cinematic film and video productions.
