Alvaro's Fresco and Caliente Greys, as he describes them, are about;"...magnetism, fury, energy...power. You know greys... create a feeling of danger, emotion, passion... mystery...evoke things that are unknown...darkness. I use these greys to create a painting that has a magnetism...energy, mystery, passion...something to discover, entering the unknown, darkness. Both of these colors have just this type of feel to me."-Alvaro Castagnet
