(b. 1983) is an artist who works with acrylic paint, pen and ink on paper. Taking stylistic cues from Renaissance masters such as Albrecht Durer and psychedlia, Alvarez blends these affinities in stream of consciousness jigsaw puzzle-like paintings questioning the meaning and absurdity of life with unflinching grotesque understanding. For Luminaria 2018, Alvarez will present a psychedelic film titled Good Job Momma
on an outer wall of UNAM featuring his newest paintings that focus on themes of solidarity with San Antonians and psycho-spiritual undertones of universal human experience.
