"I want everyone to know about my world, through my hands' work with metal."
"My name is Juan Del Alcazar de Souza, but I sign my work as DAlcazarS, which I use as my artistic name, and which denotes my personal style. I was born in the Huancayo-Junin province on December 11, 1951. My artistic formation comes from Santiago de Chile's Art Institute. I went to this neighboring country on a trip, and I became so fascinated with this type of work that I decided to stay and learn about it. When I returned to Lima, I found out first hand what it means to face this kind of world.
"This type of work to me is like a sculpture on a flat plane, with every detail equally important to its final composition. I have been dedicated to this art for over 20 years, trying to transmit the experiences of Peru's different cultures. I want everyone to know about my world, through my hands' work with metal.
"The biggest challenge I have had to endure is facing life after having had everything once.
"I hope Novica customers will identify with my artistic sensibility."
