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
