David Alvarado (b. 1958, Costa Rica)
David Alvarado studied painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Universidad de Costa Rica whereas, in Montreal, he studied Fashion Design. It is also in Montreal where he started developing his talent for painting. Later, in the renowned ITHQ he obtained a Certificate in French Cuisine. Alvarado places woman as a central element in his work. Her majestic beauty, the fascinating tenderness, the legionary strength, the unfathomable complexity, the abyssal depth of her heart; are all traits that fascinate the artist and touch his soul. Such admiration strikes the viewer at first glance and it is the life of the painter that passes before his/her eyes. These women whom he knew, he felt, he has imagined, he has dreamed, come out in his work to bring faith to those who contemplate them.
