Chema Alvargonzalez, (b. Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Spain - 1960, d. Berlin, Germany 2009)  was a conceptual multidisciplinary artist who lived and worked between Barcelona and Berlin.

He lived the exciting events surrounding fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the period following it and was part of Künstlerinitiative Tacheles. He studied at the HdK under the direction of Rebecca Horn and obtained a Master of Fine Arts and Multimedia in 1994. After his studies he materialised most of his artistic works between both cities. During those periods where he lived in Berlin he introduced several incoming artists to city and the richness of its artistic scene.

He continued to do so informally until in 2006, when he founded GlogauAIR creating a meeting point between artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration to expand their practice while exploring and interacting with the city of Berlin.
