Álvarez-Rivón, who drew comics since his childhood years, was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He studied art and drawing in the University of Puerto Rico. He wanted to come up with a different concept in comics, a comic which would entertain as well as educate children and adults alike. He then worked on an idea about a Taino and his adventures.


On October 26, 1989, Turey el Taino, published by Editorial Manos. Turey el Taino is what is known as a "comic magazine". Instead of the regular comic format, this comic comes in the form of a magazine. The first newspaper to publish the adventures of Turey was "El Mundo" of PR. Soon, the adventures of Turey were being published in color in the Sunday newspaper pages of El Nuevo Día.

The Institute of Puerto Rican Culture honored "Turey" by publishing a book on the character, which included a collection of the comic strips. "Turey" is also the principal figure on an educational pamphlet published by "ENDE" (El Nuevo Día Educador). The U.S. Postal Service honored "Turey el Taino" and his creator in 1999, by presenting a cancelled postal stamp and renaming the postal station in "Plaza Las Americas"  the "Turey Postal Station".On November 10, 1999, The Puerto Rican House of Representatives, honored "Turey's" creator Ricardo Álvarez-Rivón and presented him with a plaque.
