Spotlight on River Basin muralist Israel Alpizar


Local artist and Fort Myers Mural Society member Israel Alpizar is one of the River Basin muralists. He painted mural #39, which depicts legendary Fort Myers High Swim Coach Wes Nott watching one of his student practice diving.

Alpizar is an independent art director, web and graphic designer, and video and marketing brander for several companies across the United States. Proficient in both fine art and digital media production, Israel received his Bachelor’s Degree from The Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago.

Israel often exhibits his art and conducts live painting demonstrations at art festivals like ArtFest Fort Myers.

Most recently, his exhibition titled “Fractasia” was displayed in the Capital Gallery at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in September of 2022. The work in that show was a fusion of fractals (infinitely complex proportional geometric shapes and patterns that repeat across different scales and dimensions of time and space) and fantasia (imagery and imagination with a free-flowing, no-strict-form musical composition) that combined traditional painting techniques, contemporary projection mapping, lighting effects and interactive installations.

Born in Mexico City, Alpizar moved to the United States with his mother when he was five years old and he has now visited every state in the Union with the exceptions of Alaska and Hawaii.
