From Puerto Rico
I'm an artist born in Puerto Rico and grew up here surrounded by mountains, plains, rivers, sea and the city. Our islands natural beauty and it's colors "the greens, yellows, reds, blues and every color in between" but not only color has inspired my artwork, but also our diverse culture (African, Spanish, Indian "Taino" and North American).
INSPIRATION, INFLUENCES and MENTORS
Had a childhood full influences by fantastic, imaginary, sci-fi and story driven images that have sparked creating fantastic worlds, vehicles, stories have here left me with the desire to explore places not known and share my experiences through art.
Here are some of my Artistic Influences, Rafael Tufiño, Lorenzo Homar, Arnaldo Roche Rabell, Roger Dean, John Harris, Bernie Fuchs, Bill Seinkiewic there many more but the list would be too long.
I have to thanks this great artists and mentors that have been inspiration and had the pleasure to know some more than others but have been instrumental to me along this road.
Jose Vega, John English, Tommy Arnold, Edward Kinsella III, Jama Jurabaev, Paul Ossimo, Nick Hiatt among others.
Thanks to all my friends and family for the support. My wife Lysmar and kids Pablo and Rebeca which have been instrumental and the motivation for doing this.
