FRAGMENTS AND ATMOSPHERES
After completing a first class honours degree in Humanities at La Sapienza University in Rome Alvaro moved to London and studied for a second degree in Fine Art at Central St Martin’s. Since graduating, 15 years ago, he has been painting professionally.
Alvaro constantly experiments with media and approaches to create different textures and atmospheres. Colours and marks are often rinsed off or erased to represent a void where microcosms turn into macrocosms and vice versa. To create this network of images and landscape references, he employs a variety of approaches including paper laminating, alternative photographic processes, wax treatment alongside acrylics, oils, watercolor and ink, the latter being his preferred painting medium.
