Conservative Art: Alvaro Alvillar

I've often said that there should be more conservative art.

I found a video of the artist Alvaro Alvillar on

I wasn't that keen about the video, but I clicked around his portfolio site, and he had some interesting pieces.

I like the bright colours. The line is a bit childish, but not without charm.

I can't figure out how to post the pictures to my blog-- I'm sure he doesn't want everyone swiping his art off the internet. So you'll have to click on the URL to see the works.

I don't have an "interpretation" for Latino Pen but I just like it.

I like hoods because it works on so many level. I get the feeling he's criticizing our culture's intelligentsia. They look like books and Klu Klux Klansmen.

In the context of the election of Barack Obama, changes is interesting. The common man is a target, in so many ways.
