Everything begins with a thought, an idea or image that I have to bring it to life with the hope that someone may find something that resonates with them.
The love for money, religion, and sex are the strings that moved humanity through history. Those topics have affected my life and my work at different times. I may not be conscious of the “message” behind or the subliminal emotion that a painting may have. Like love may not be put into words, art just is. I like that wondering in an art piece, that makes people feel some emotion.
I have been inspired by the human figure: super-heroes, portraiture, nudes, sculptures. From the classical Greek & Roman art to the masters of Renaissance, Neoclassic, Pop-art and Comic books. Later on, in my career, stereotypes of beauty in youth, athletic bodies or some skin hues was found in other subjects that require a deeper look.
At the end of the day, I’m representing those same old gods from western culture that other artist portrayed before me. The “new gods” that now are in magazines, movies, radio, and TV.
I recreate images with a classical approach and a contemporary twist of decor. Color has an emotional spectrum that I explore with my work. Also, I like to show how the choices in fashion help to portray the character of a person.
As years past by, the initial rush to go somewhere with my work has become more clear, it may happen when the time is right. Now, I just keep following my dream and paint just like I need to breathe.
