The art critic Alejandro Ratia published: One could speak of Humanario to define Alva Moca's Gallery of characters those who he applies his peculiar plastic treatment. Between the freshness of Street Art and the most rabid expressionism, the artist drives his characters to the limit in which the human becomes an xtraterrestrial, a divinity or a dangerous beast, which he lurks in a paradoxically, increasingly inhuman society.
