“The 'Cave Paintings' are artifacts from an alternative future. A place where simple, natural things are cherished. A place void of plastic or styrofoam or racism or indifference. The American system, its history and norms, is remembered like Ancient Rome. Time loses its linearity. The past remembers the future.” — RF Alvarez
Robert F. Alvarez (b. 1988) creates visual narratives drawn from his own writings and observations. With a background in advertising and graphic design, Alvarez’s bold images are often centered on issues of identity, where he examines the intersection of text and image to promote a dialogue of reflection and consideration. Working primarily with black ink, which the artist describes as having a distinct “narrative power intrinsic to our documented experiences,” his works are imbued with a sense of disillusionment or melodrama that facilitates conversations and expresses genuine experiences. Alvarez is currently based in Austin, TX.
