This Colombian artist was born in December 1968 in the town of Rionegro, Antioquia, Colombia.


At an early age, Álvarez was interested in drawing, shapes and colors, and soon discovered his passion and dedication for art.


In 1996, he completed an internship where he practiced engraving and the use of color.


In his town, Álvarez was well-known as an active member of the municipality’s arts committee. He and fellow artists regularly perform at salons and exhibitions of painting and sculpture.


In 1999, he traveled to the United States and settled in Connecticut. He is member of the Greenwich Art Society and Greenwich Arts Council. 

Today, César Ovidio retains his Impressionist roots and occasionally accepts the challenge of some sculpture experimenting with various materials and with the possibility of attaching dimension to those images that he does not want to limit to the canvas.

The artist has exhibitions in stages such as: The Colombian General Consulate of in NY, Agora Gallery in Manhattan, Art Revolution Taipei, among others.
