Bogie Alvarado

Bogie Alvarado is the second eldest in the Alvarado artist brothers. Having a well-known artist father, Bogie picked up his father's pens and brushes at a very young age.

He finished only his third year in high school, Bogie already bored with school and opted an early career in art. He then won prestigious recognitions such as being named as one of the top 30 finalists in the Philippine Drawing Society's drawing contest in 2005, as well as landing in the national finals of the much coveted Philippine Art Awards in 1998.

As Bogie enjoyed listening to heavy metal music, the album cover designs of his CD collections greatly influenced his artistic style: sharp, strong, shocking. He is also aligned with the political view of his artist father who used to be a student activist.
