He received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of design and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Alvaro Zardoni, born in Mexico City's "Colonia Roma" neighborhood, studied painting and drawing at Irene Lindroth's studio from 1975 to 1988. He started to work in sculpture in an independent way, experimenting with various materials until he settled on bronze. His sculpture, mostly figurative, is usually accompanied by different found objects that reinforce the original idea of each piece.
