"I always love to tell stories in my paintings and thought it would be fun to paint this small flag with a taped piece of paper with the pledge of allegiance" says Jose. "When you become a U.S. naturalized citizen, they give you this small flag to keep as a souvenir. When I saw this flag placed on my apartment wall, the way it curls and casts its shadows on the wall, I got inspired to paint it."

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
