We return to our regular Featured Artist scheduling with none other than Álvaro Sánchez!
Álvaro Sánchez was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied design, music and architecture.
Since leaving Argentina, he has lived in almost every country in Latin America. In 1990, Álvaro established a residence on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
As a self-taught silversmith Álvaro has gathered influences, techniques and inspiration from the ancient and contemporary art of the many cultures he has been immersed in.
His artistic style has an urban Latin flavour.
Using precious metals and natural gems, Álvaro creates fine jewellery that is durable and very comfortable to wear. Álvaro’s passion for music has also remained untouched, and he sells his recordings alongside his silver work.
