The beauty of the fine art of Alvaro Sanchez is it's connection to antecedents in modern
and contemporary art drawing from influences as much musical as visual recalling and extrapolating upon the work of Dada and Surrealist progenitors as well as the best sentiments and manipulative properties of advertising or Pop Art sensibilities creating a new vocabulary situated somewhere between comedy and horror; the Beats and Punk
meet 21st Century technology with a home grown raw, yet refined, finish.

Alvaro's prowress as a designer of immediate
and impactive imagery is staggering and formidable.
In collaborative sessions in San Francisco and Sausalito he's demonstrated an ability to adapt and transform materials in the best tradition of the mixed media artist all the while observing and appropriating
techniques of his fellows and morphing those impressions into something fresh and new.
Mad Sanchez is an invaluable member of Global Art Project through his creative interpretations of imagery for our graphic profile and related projects.
He is Guatemala's finest son. Gracias mi Hermano Señor Vato Loco...

“My work is a very personal vision about the fragility of humanness, that is to say a reflection on the human condition; it’s a celebration dedicated to our errors and disgraces and that we remember that we are imperfect and how finite we are. I want the person who sees my work to experience something similar to the sensation that you get when you listen to a punk song at full volume.”
