ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sergio Alvarez was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. After completing studies at
Mississippi State University, Sergio has called New Orleans home for over 20 years and has lived in United States for 42 years.
His first solo exhibition was at The Copan Maya Gallery in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, in July of 1991.
Sergio’s artistic renaissance began in May of 2011 as a therapeutic outlet.
His next exhibitions were at d.o.c.s. Gallery group exhibitions, during the summer of
2012 and 2013.
Sergio’s work astounded audiences as he evolved with confidence during a group exhibit at TREO’s Gallery in September of 2014.
Sergio has participated in many group exhibits and two Bywater Biennials at The New Orleans Art Center, which he became a part of in November 2015 to present.
The paintings are inside with an outside feel, the light source is blue or white, attempting to give an artificial feel to the way the light hit the objects and distorted shadows to confuse the eye and our logic, what we know.
“EMBRACE DIVESITY” in a country made of a jambalaya of races.
The Artist present work is political, his reaction to the direction that our government is taking!
Sergio is represented by Ariodante Gallery and New Orleans Art Center
