Please join us in friendship for the Of Colors Presentation of “FIERCE” ~ TheExhibition. Renowned New York City Artist and Honoree, “Alvaro” is the protege of the late Antonio Lopez and is displaying his amazing works in this exhibition.
“Alvaro is a renowned painter/illustrator who has become popular in the fashion and entertainment industries. He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1963, and raised in the Bronx. Alvaro’s father worked as a film cutter and often brought home old films that he showed on a rickety film projector. As a youngster, Alvaro was inspired by the images of iconic actresses such as Greta Garbo, Harlow, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. Imbued with admiration for the beauty and strength of women, so began Alvaro’s long obsession with fashion culture, pop and surreal art, and drawing the female figure”.
