Artist Statement:
Everything starts with a gestural drawing. I capture lines and rhythms with pencil, and this drawing becomes the map to where the first and last splash of watercolor, ink, alcohol ink or acrylic will drip. Because the paper that I use doesn’t allow the paint be absorbed, the pigment moves around. Gravity and oxygen play a part in the way the pigments set.
The first strokes define the contours and masses, then cross hatching starts the rendering of forms and shadows. Splash and drip; accidents start to happen. I allow these accidents to play a role in the piece. These accidents define the figures and create the volumes that give movement and energy.
I let the medium take control but in the end the message is controlled by me.

I live every single drip and stroke and brush I add. No precision and no planning; all is pure instinct. Whatever sets will become a nice surprise. The colors move around on their own and bring the piece to life. Figures, bodies, beings, actions; they come out of the paper from a surreal dream of climax. They are moving, and they are not quiet.

Born in in Lima-Perú, Alvaro Luna began drawing since he was able to utilize his hands. Having the opportunity to immerse himself in two strong cultures resulted in his unique perspective of his surroundings. He is currently featuring his creations in multiple exhibitions in New York, California, Lima-Peru and more. Alvaro Luna continues to ignite a provocative, unapologetic, and sincere rendering in his artworks that stems from paper, clay, resins, watercolors and even Chocolate.
