Silvio Alvarez: Collage

Today’s feature is São Paulo, Brazil artist Silvio Alvarez.  Alvarez is self-taught and has been working with collage since 1989.

I find Alvarez’s work  very interesting: “He gives us a cheerful picture of everyday life in the big city, without, however, failing to provide a critical analysis of society.

Silvio believes that the most important raw material in his work – even more important than paper – is patience. He cuts out images from magazines or publicity leaflets, one by one, to create a world that is wholly his own, magic and surreal.” (from Art Slant )
