Patrcia Álvarez was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico, in 1956. She studied philosophy, design and a degree in Textile Art at the National School of Arts in Lodz, Poland.
Spirituality is transcendental in the work of Patricia Álvarez. She has a great influence of Zen Buddhism, which seeks to experience wisdom beyond a rational discourse.
Literature is another important element in the work of Patrcia Álvarez; her images are deeply affected by poetry, a world where words and images are in constant connection.
She has participated in exhibitions in Mexico, Brazil, United States, Poland and Prague. She has also dedicated part of her career to curatorial projects in Mexico and Germany.
