Álvaro Martínez-Alonso *1983, Burgos
Álvaro Martínez-Alonso is a Spanish artist currently living in Berlin. He works with a variety of different media to explore the most appropriate way of expressing an idea each time.
On the basis of his personal experiences, Álvaro explores both socio-political and emotional themes, often depicting social situations that would otherwise be forgotten. In his photographs of the series A Land in Suspense, he shows people at places in their everyday lives, stuck motionless in the air. His video installations also deal with similar topics. After studying art in Valencia, Bilbao and Halle, Álvaro Martínez's works have been exhibited in Germany, Argentina, Venezuela, Spain, Italy, Poland and Uruguay, among other countries, and have won many prizes.
