Samuel Alvarez (b. 1997) has always had a passion for art and when he went on a trip to London he discovered the paintings of John Waterhouse and Arthur Hacker, painters who blended the fine arts with illustrative storytelling. He then decided to study classical painting at the Barcelona Academy of Art where he learned the techniques and methods of the old masters. After finishing the academy, Samuel has divided his time between the Keys and Europe, studying and developing his vision of reality, merging illustration, figure and landscape into one.
