Alvar Sunol: 1935 (Spain)

The Artist:

Alvar Sunol was born in Montgat near Barcelona, Catalunya in 1935. Alvar is one of Spain's major living artists. Alvar began formal studies at the Escuel Superior de Bellas Artes de San Jorge in Barcelona and won the Young Painter's Prize in 1956. The following year the Instituit Francais awarded him the First Prize of the Circulo Maillo, a scholarship to Paris. His studies in Paris led to the formation of an "Ecole de Paris" group show at the Galerie Chapentier. Alvar exhibits regularly in Paris and continues to win international prizes. Besides regular shows in France and Spain, Alvar's art is exhibited in museums and international art expositions including venues in United States, Tokyo, Sweden, Alexandria, Switzerland, Tel Aviv, and London.

The Art:

The work displayed below is a classic Alvar image, a lithograph print representative of Alvar's innovative printmaking techniques. A simple drawing is superimposed with more than seven colors and color gradations, and textures. Through motifs such as the stylized figure in this composition, the lace, flowers, and dove, Alvar shows appreciation for the values and habits of uncomplicated people.
