Paola Alvarado was born in 1978 in Mexico City. At the age of 19, she travelled alone to Germany to live in the small town of Weissenstein.
Although originally only intendeding to stay for a year, she moved to Munich in 1999. After attending the Peter Zeiler Drawing School,
she decided to stay in Munich in order to study painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. During her course of study she travelled
frequently, pursuing her interest in the varying human perceptions of life. Searching always for an answer and not for a definite truth,
she studied with professors like Nikolaus Lang, Markus Oehlen, Sean Scully , Daniel Richter (in Vienna) and Peter Kogler. She graduated
with her diploma in 2010.|
