Juan Alvarez ( @wamoopapez ), who goes professionally as WAMOO, is a musician and visual artist from New York City. His approach to music is akin to collage making and has an omnivorous set of influences, including southern hip hop, shoegazing, and commercial jingles. His latest album, Zebra, was released in 2015.

He has also delved into filmmaking and paper collaging. His latest album, "Zebra" is complemented with a musical short film that utilizes video clips in a way that is very similar to sampling in music, stitching together disparate clips to create a cohesive story. He is currently working on a paper collage series titled "Beverages", as well as a new record.
