Alvaro Naddeo is a painter who is originally from São Paulo, Brazil and currently lives in Tampa, FL.
Alvaro explains the work by saying, “The subject matter of my work is waste, overconsumption and social inequality. Trash and objects found in the street are valuable, and not only for aesthetic reasons. The brands, logos and packaging depicted in my work are objects with an inherent duality, both desirable and despicable, a clear byproduct of having worked in advertising for more than 20 years.”
