Miguel Alvarez


Miguel Alvarez's is a painter and artist based in NYC. His work stems from the understanding of different Occult practices. He examines dreams, nightmares, and fears, all which is often portrayed through figurative and nonrepresentational imagery, bizarre objects, tales of fantasy and the symbolism that surround our curiosity.


My inspiration comes from Surrealism and the powerful works of Salvador Dali and the delicate machinations of Max Ernst. Although, I love Surrealism, there are other schools that inspire me just as much, and they are; Contemporary Art, Modernist-Primitivism, Expressionism and last, but definitely not the least, the representational work of the Classical Masters of the Renaissance.
