Alfredo Melendez is a representational artist who works in a variety of media. In conjunction with his love for partner dancing, his work has focused on the intimacy of the connection between two people on the dance floor, their flow and movement, as well the more comical moments that can occur dancing. The central draw is always the woman, who in her voluptuousness and attitude, commands attention and desire.
Alfredo is a graduate of the school of visual arts. He is currently a partner dance instructor, blog writer, consultant, and entrepreneur. You can find out more about dance lessons and his online store at www.alfredomelendez.com.
