Was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela and currently resides in Kennesaw, Georgia. Carlos background is in Graphic Design. He started painting in the mid-nineties as a freelancer specializing in nature, fantasy, spirituality and conceptual art.
In “The Dreamlike Reality” Carlos dreams are transformed to convey and stimulate the mythical and spiritual elements through visual expression. His passion in painting started with the magnificence elements of nature, fauna and flora, and it’s natural beauty that involves it’s selective conditions; for example, the majestic animals of the Amazon or Indians from Venezuela (Guajiros). He has always tried to expand his work to other areas of reality and with a spiritual meaning. Carlos occasionally has the tendency to go from one extreme to another in order to explore, and show the ranges of styles and techniques in creating the most beautiful and delicate components of life to the most complex and strange art.
Carlos has the pleasure and the opportunity to experience the richness of many cultures in South and North America, which has allowed him to expand his imagination even more. It also helped him to understand the differences and similarities of both worlds. His work reflects the distinctness of his artistic perception from those experiences, which provides vivid colors and physical details in order to make something visually pleasing, grotesque or unfamiliar to look at. Carlos also tries to create awareness by expressing an opinion about our delicate habitat, the lack of knowledge about cultural and racial diversity in South America.
Carlos is also himself a curator and the leader of a group of Latin American artist residing in Georgia called Cantrapunto. Carlos has exhibited in several cities around the country including but not limited to New York, Chicago and Atlanta.
