Arturo Álvarez is a designer, craftsman and artist. He likes to define himself as a creator, a concept that synthesizes all the previous ones and with which he feels more comfortable and recognized.

Self-taught, rebellious, always curious, he does not like to impose limits. In his trajectory there are three defining moments. During the first years he explores and works with figurative concepts, based on nature. In a second period, he advances towards abstraction by exploring simple geometric forms. Without abandoning references to nature, the human body appears, a theme that is repeated and in which he continues to investigate over the years. Nowadays, Arturo Álvarez is developing new forms of expression and language, with light as the main theme and the human being and his relationships as the protagonist, with its lights and shadows, encounters and disagreements, issues that concern him and in which he delves through different techniques and materials.

The recognition of his work, throughout his twenty-five year career, has come in the form of prestigious international awards and numerous awards as an innovator in the field of light.


Arturo Álvarez is a renowned Spanish artist who has exhibited in museums, galleries and important art exhibitions (DDC Gallery, Arco, Mint, Art Madrid…) His artwork have been exhibited in national and international exhibitions, being protagonists in important events and galleries in New York, London, Madrid and Barcelona.
