About Andrea Alvin:

Andrea Alvin paints still life. She captures a moment, a piece of nostalgia, or a remembrance. Her work evokes the feelings that “I remember having that,” or “that was my favorite”…

Growing up in Fresno California, the daughter of a beautician and a cattleman, with a standard poodle for a pet, it is no wonder that a sense of humor permeates her work. Spending blazing hot summers in a chlorine - induced haze, with a Popsicle in one hand and a pencil and paper in the other, she began her art career at an early age.  “For as long as I can remember, I knew I would be an artist. “

Alvin graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles CA, (now of Pasadena) in Advertising Design. After graduation, she immediately began working as an animation layout artist and designer for commercial film production houses contributing creatively to many national and regional commercials and worked as a layout artist for Hanna Barbera.

Alvin began painting and exhibiting her unique art in various galleries and venues throughout California. In 1989 she joined ranks with her husband, internationally renowned illustrator, John Alvin, creating their own design and illustration studio specializing in key art for movie posters. Andrea Alvin has contributed to the design and creation of ad campaigns for such movies as: Batman Returns and Batman Forever, Grumpier Old Men for Warner Bros., Pinocchio, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan and The Little Mermaid for Disney Studios; Doc Hollywood and Jurassic Park for Universal.

In 2003 Alvin moved from Los Angeles to New York’s Hudson Valley to pursue her fine art career. She continued to paint throughout her commercial career and it is now her full time occupation. She has exhibited in art galleries throughout the US. Her work influenced by Pop Art and Photorealism. The subjects are very American – post-war, baby-boomer, middle-class American. It’s not apple pie, but Oreo cookies and Necco Wafers as cultural and historical icons that a 60 year old and a 20 year old can reminisce about.  Alvin says, “I love the idea of everyday objects or products, taken beyond the magazine, billboard or TV ad, and lovingly glorified and idealized.”
