Arturo Álvarez-2018

Arturo Álvarez (Pontevedra 1964) is an acclaimed Spanish artist who develops his artistic project in the fields of sculpture and design. Self-taught, in the beginning, he developed his innate talent inspired by nature and human. His interpretation of the volumes and the illumination set a strong personality in the creation of surprising scenographies.

In the early nineties, Arturo began experimenting with glass. He learns vitreaux and tiffany techniques and starts creating luminaries with a contemporary language. These beginnings with nods to the Art Deco and Art Noveau lead to innovative and daring designs. After an evolution of many years, Arturo Álvarez reinvents forms, volumes, perspectives and continues creating luminaries inspired by the Bauhaus.


In recent years, his work has evolved towards abstraction by exploring simple geometric forms without abandoning references to nature. At this point in his career, he introduces feminine forms as inspiration for his most recent work.


At present, Arturo Álvarez develops new forms of expression with light as the guiding thread. The human being as protagonist, his relationships, light, shadow, agreements and disagreements are topics in which he deepens with his creation. With different techniques, he explores new forms of artistic expression where lights and shadows create emotions.
