ORIGINAL Fine Art by Beach Cities local Artists, Artisans and Musicians from the South Orange County Coast, CA - San Clemente, Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, the Laguna's, the Viejo's and the Rancho's
Life long learning is a passion for most artists and we heard "through the grapevine" that Maestro Alvarez (AlvarezGallery, Laguna Beach) had one of the best Figurative Artist Workshops. We are so pleased to share the work of Javier and hope that you will be as inspired as we are to attend his workshops or commission him for a portrait. -Barb Ross, MHA, Oceanview Gallery
Alasdeoro by Javier Alvarez
Commission or Purchase an Original Painting by Maestro Javier Alvarez Palomar
Maestro Javier Alvarez Palomar was born in the artistic heart of Mexico, the state of Michoacan. His Tarascan Indian roots have inbued him with deeply intuitive instincts that are revealed in the emotion and passion of his art that draws in the viewer - whether it is a powerful life-size figure drawing or a refined portrait. Rarely is an Artist so adept at capturing the directness and emotional expression of the subject. His drawings, paintings and sculptures transcend the mere understanding and application of the formal elements of art and anatomy by amazingly conveying the complexities of attitude and inner spirit.
Javier earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts and two Masters degrees in drawing and painting from the State University of California at Long Beach. His inspirations as an artist have been the great masters - Rembrandt, Rubens, Michelangelo and to a lessor degree the Mexican muralists. Mexican Master, Raul Anguiano commented, " ...No one draws like that anymore!"
Maestro Alvarez currently teaches at Fullerton Community College, Saddleback Community College and holds various workshops at the Laguna Canyon Studios and Laguna Woods Community Center in South Orange County and we are fortunate to view his Originals at numerous Art Gallery Events in California.
