Pedro Diego Alvarado was born in Mexico City in 1956 to a family of engravers and painters. His maternal grandfather was Diego Rivera, the famous artist.
He moved to Paris in 1977 to study at the Ecole National des Beaux-Arts and Henri Cartier-Bresson became his friend and mentor.
In 1984, Alvarado held his first one man show in the Galería de Arte Mexicano, and in 1991 he painted a 60 square metre mural for the lobby of the Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico.
In England, during 1994, Alvarado worked as assistant to the Nicaraguan painter Armando Morales. Pedro Diego Alvarado presents individual exhibitions regularly and has participated in many collective shows in Mexico and internationally.
We are excited to present the Mexican painter Pedro Diego Alvarado as Bridgeman's hot, new contemporary artist.
