Sunol, Alvar

Àlvar Suñol Munoz-Ramos, commonly known as Àlvar, was born on January 29, 1935 in Montgat, Spain.

Àlvar’s career has spanned over six-decades, beginning at the age of 18 when he was awarded the Young Painter’s Prize from the city of Barcelona, whereby the Museum of Modern Art in Barcelona acquired his painting for their permanent collection. In 1960, Àlvar became part of the artist stable at the influential Galerie Drouant in Paris.

He was acclaimed by the eminent critic, Jacques Lassaigne, who invited him to take part in the Salon School of Paris in 1960, a group of the top young artists in Spain, organized by the Charpentier Gallery.

His works have been presented by over 40 museums (exhibitions and permanent collections) and over 95 galleries throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

He continues to reside in and create from his studio north of Barcelona.
