"My name is Ismael Alvarez. I was born on May 12, 1978 (Taurus) in Ayamonte, a small town of Huelva, Andalucia, Spain (Although now we could say it's a great city because of its growth and its popularity). I am a child of a married couple who married at 15 and 17 years respectively, also born in Ayamonte. Right now, I live in Madrid, the Spanish capital, this city and not change it for the world. I love Madrid, and as the saying goes: "From Madrid to Heaven." I was fascinated not only by the fact that this city is beautiful, but by the people I have met here, very important to me, who are already part of my life. And it is here in Madrid where I began working as an illustrator, designer and comic book. I love the world of comics in general, the world of eroticism, and why not say the world of pornography. I do not understand why people see the world of sex (and everything around it) as something dirty, only to perverts ... It is quite the opposite!, In my web, and even in myself you can find a sample of this, a world full of beauty and eroticism (remember that beauty is subjective ...). And if you do not like what you see, you got it easy, just ... DON'T LOOK!. Sex is something nice my dear friends, we need to like it as such ..."
"An artist is someone who produces things that people do not need but that he, for some reason, thinks it would be a good idea to give them." - Andy Warhol --
In April 2009 Bruno Gmunder will release an art book by Ismael Álvarez, In Yer Face:
Alvarez’ incredibly striking style is a powerful blend of beauty and unabashed sensuality. From the fantastic to the vividly realistic, the works collected in this book are bound to arouse the eye and body.
