Biography   Candida Alvarez

Candida Alvarez was born in Brooklyn, New York on February 2, 1955. Her parents came to the United States from Puerto Rico in the 1950s. She studied at Fordham University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1981. Alvarez' art aims at inclusiveness. Personal and cultural symbols, narrative, everyday artifacts, abstraction and representation coexist in her multipaneled compositions.
