Critter- Chris Alvarez



My name is Chris Alvarez. I’ve been drawing for most of my life and am a founding member of the art collective at Interfaith Sanctuary in Boise.

I draw portraits and am a self-taught tattoo artist currently looking for an apprenticeship to grow my skill set. Fine art and the technical aspects of drawing are what drive my creative work. I’ve always been interested in graffiti, and growing up in San Diego, that’s what got me interested in being an artist. Graffiti was like looking at a maze with the colors and lines all over the place, and the block and bubble letters appear frequently in my work today.

I draw and paint in a variety of mediums and recently completed a series of t-shirts commissioned to honor Donnie, an Interfaith Sanctuary guest who passed away in June.
