At the beginning of the 2019-20 school year, the above three pieces of art appeared on the walls of Avon's Ordway Art Gallery. All of are from alumnus Moises Esquenazi '89.
A native of Bogota, Colombia, Moises Esquenazi arrived at Avon Old Farms in 1985 and immediately gravitated towards the arts, leading him to the fields of Architecture and Arts earning a B.A. from Cornell University and an M.F.A. from the University of Southern California. In addition to his work in interior design and architecture, he is an accomplished Photographer having exhibited at the Makor Center in New York City, GalleryB in Sag Harbor, NY and ALM in St. Tropez, France. Moises often incorporates his photography into interior projects in addition to creating bespoke furniture and wall coverings. His aesthetic is best described as “warm modern” as he incorporates organic textures and material along with classical and eclectic furniture into a playful, modern context.
Moisesʼ Palm Springs home was featured as one of the "Best Homes in America" in the 25th Anniversary edition of Metropolitan Home, and his Hamptons home was recently the feature story for the cover of the magazine. Additional work has been published in House Beautiful, the Los Angeles Times, SPACE Magazine, the London Telegraph, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens as well as House and Garden.
Recently, Moises opened a gallery and concept store in Miami alongside his work studio. This new concept has evolved through different pop-ups and collaborations. The last event was StickerDisco- a mashup of sticker store, bar and disco music which will most likely resurface at a different location next year.
