Eva Montealegre invites you all to see her paintings at her home gallery studio where she resides with her husband, a stone sculptor

Eva grew up surrounded by art, music, theatre and literature.  Her work is informed by various successful creative pursuits. Her organic spiritual connection is always present as a through-line in her ingenious expression. Her love affair with painting emerged under the tutelage of abstract painter, Robert Kingston. From the moment of her first brush stroke something resonated deep in the core of her being and she knew she was destined to become what some people call a “mad crazy painter.”  It was a match of spirit and the world – she sold that first painting even before it dried.  Since then, more than a hundred of her works have been acquired by art collectors in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Ventura, St. Louis and Santa Barbara counties.  Her gallery debut was at Long Beach Arts gallery where her mixed-media sculpture, Lady Starskull Ponders the Cosmos, garnered acclaim and was awarded a prize. M.J. Higgins Gallery on the Downtown Los Angeles Artwalk followed, and then the Topanga Art Safari, the historical Art Pavillion in Santa Barbara, the Canoga Youth Art Center, Orlando Gallery, Verve Gallery on La Brea, TAG Gallery in Santa Monica, Art Raw Gallery in West Chelsea, N.Y., the Modern Art Gallery on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles and at Blue Bird Art House in Whittier.  Sometimes she donates her artwork to raise funds for charities like the HEART TOUCH ORGANIZATION  & CRLA, The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum and the local school in Topanga.  Her masks and 3-d artwork is featured as favorite artist at the ROGUE ARTISTS ENSEMBLE website, to check it out go to: https://www.whatistheorigin.com/see.php


Eva’s studio is in Topanga, next to a wild life conservancy.  She often goes for long walks and sometimes meditates for days at time before one of her painting streaks.  Her Luminosity series was a focus of meditation for a year before she created the first painting.

Artist Statement

It’s my intention to create a dance of color and form that manifests in a dreamlike conveyance of everything from whimsy to drama.  An energetic flow, a spiritual is-ness and sometimes even an explosion is conveyed.  This intense style of painting allows me to create a tran-substantial truth, an energetic veracity.  My artistic influences include my dear painting instructor, Robert Kingston, most of all, but I have also admired the work of Francis Bacon, Fritz Scholder, Susan Seddon Boulet & Valerie Bechtol.  Sometimes when I am painting I am in a divine state and other times it is more akin to an apache tango dance.
