Alva CalyMayor is an artist who works in a variety of media. Alva uses a visual vocabulary that addresses social issues, perceptions of safety as well as patterns of mass consumption. She keeps track of its manifestations and the trace they leave as they are discarded, repurposed or become no longer functional.

Alva is currently participating as a Mentor for NYFA’s Program Mentorship for Immigrants Program (2014), formed part of the 27th Bronx Artist’s in the Marketplace (2007), has been included in a guide published by Cuarta Pared featuring work of emerging artists in Mexico; CUADRO (2010). Her work was the inaugural feature at the BRIC Rotunda Online Registry (2008), in 2006 she received a Grant from the Stephen Sprouse Scholarship Fund for pushing the boundaries within the printmaking field.

Alva has been recognized in three recent publications exploring and showcasing art in a non-commercial format and for her collaborations with fellow artists through Eyelevel BQE, project that she co-funded in 2008: Interview Magazine (2013), "Alternative Histories," New York art spaces from 1960-2010, MIT Press (2012), Artists in the Marketplace second Biennial; “The Other Marketplace," Lia Zaalof (2013).
