About the artist:
Andres Alvarez was born in the Dominican Republic in 1977. He moved at an early age to Puerto Rico, where he spent most of his teenage years until he moved to New York City at the age of 18.
Art making was always part of his life growing up, but it wasn’t until the age of 36 that Andres decided to let it play a bigger role in his life and spend more time developing his abilities, learning new techniques and paying closer attention to the world around him and how it had influenced his artistic expression.
His most recent works are a reflection of his interest in capturing a glimpse of the essence of the human condition and nature, while at the same time exercising his right to break away from convention and perceived rules.
Push, pull. Build, deconstruct.
