In illustrator David Álvarez’s recent charcoal works, the night is a character that walks the countryside. “I Dreamed I Was the Night” is the name of that latest series, a collection that will presumably comprise another story for the Mexico-based artist.
Other recent projects from the artist include the quirky illustrated book “Noche Antigua,” with the following description, as translated: “Luna left her house of water to illuminate the sky. He wanted to distribute his white flashes in the sky, and defecated. Their faeces were scattered, bright stones over the blackness.”
