Biography  
Rene Alvarado


Born in a small village in Mexico, Rene Alvarado, a painter of large-scale stylized religious and symbolic motifs, moved at age five to Douglas, Wyoming with his family who encouraged his early art talents.  He studied at the San Antonio Art Institute, and then opened a studio in San Angelo in a former Lutheran Church that has ceilings high enough to accommodate his creations. 

He has also taught art classes.

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."
