Born in a small village in Mexico, Rene Alvarado, a painter of

Of his painting that is spiritual in nature, he says: "I'd like
to think that my work has no cultural bias. Some of the images
are in relationship to things that are relevant with my culture, but
I'd like to leave the door open for wonderment to anyone."
