Born in 1984, American contemporary artist Dan Alva comes from a Spanish background of fine artists. He spent his childhood working alongside his father in the family garage and largely credits his craft to him.
Based in Miami, Alva takes the classics and reinvents them for a modern-day audience. He re-masters the masters and creates undoubtedly alluring work. His bold and unapologetic pieces are incredibly intricate, as he combines his figurative visual language with bursts of camouflage, stripes, and other patterns.
Alva has worked as a creative in Advertising for the last 15 years and has work in the MoMA's permanent film collection.
