Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo renders multimedia portraits that are slightly disturbing, evoking a feeling of dread and anxiety. The spontaneous line and sporadic distribution of color lends to this feeling, as if the audience is losing control while viewing the works. The works are inspired by low-budget film icons, with close attention paid to outsiders and villains. Hidalgo also draws inspiration from retro icons and fashion. One piece features a deranged representation of Elvis with demonic teeth and an oversized pink nose.
Alvaro Tapia Hidalgo is based out of Granada, Spain. The artist has been working in graphic design and filmmaking for over twenty years. His masterful use of bright colors and simple forms is engaging and allows for the portraits to become complex and dynamic.
