Jose explains the title of this painting. "On the front, there's a Rubik's cube that is almost finished - all I need to do is a few twists here and there to finish all the colors. On the wall, is my own copy of a detail of Rembrandt's portrait painting - again almost finished. The face is done, the background is almost done, and the cuff needs a little bit more work. I always have fun painting 'picture within a picture' type of paintings."

Jose H. Alvarenga

Inglewood, California

Jose’s soft still life paintings are like visual puns. He creates relationships between objects that evoke both amusement and contemplation in the viewer. By devising a clever dialogue between objects, Jose turns a still life into a story. Jose utilizes a classical realist style with a gentle nod to surrealism through his unique subject selections. He is inspired by everyday objects, particularly those with a quality of nostalgia, memory, or humor. Jose paints out of his Los Angeles area apartment, where he also enjoys playing the keyboard and reading art books.

No, that´s not me..it´s an interesting coincidence, but I don´t know how to do sculptures only paintings. I was only 9 years old in 1983 :-)

Do you by any chance do sculptures too? We have a Scales of Justice sculpture done in 1983 and it says H.Alvarenga on it
