Our Chosen Instrument - #11 - Eduardo Alvarado Sánchez-Cortés

Eduardo Alvarado Sánchez-Cortés was born in Miranda de Ebro in 1972. 

The palaeolithic art in the caves of Altamira, the Spanish Baroque painting and the work of Miguelangelo made their mark in the childhood of Eduardo.When he was a teenager, he discovered the works of the painter Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and the illustrator Barron Storey. From that moment, these artists became a continuous reference for Eduardo's work.

In 1990, he began to study Fine Arts at the UPV and two years later moved to Madrid where he finished his education in 1995, the year in which he began to exhibit his work.

In 1999, he moved to La Rioja, where he developed his intensive artistic work ethic and has also lived in Castilla y Leon and, especially, in the Basque Country.

Since 2005, he resides with his wife, children and cats in the city in which he was born.

His work is found in over a hundred collections and this has led him to exhibit his works both in his home country and also abroad; the highlights being an exhibition in the USA alongside some of the renowned artists of the Figurative Movement of California to Nathan Oliveira, Richard Diebenkorn or Kim Froshin. He has had numerous exhibitions in Serbia with the artist Vesna Pavlovic, or his last solo exhibition in France in the gallery GAAB.

He currently divides his time between his prolific activity as a draftsman and painter with pedagogy in numerous courses, workshops and conferences.

He has his own website, a blog and a Facebook page.
