I started painting 'seriously' when I lived in NYC back in the early 80’s. In 1983, I headed to Barcelona and after returning to my native Puerto Rico, I started producing museum-quality work while selling all my gallery shows (1987-1992). I have paintings at the PR Museo de Arte Contemporáneo and the Museum of the Organization of American States (DC). I have participated in biennials including the Bienal de Santo Domingo, the Bienal de Cuenca and the Monaco Biennial. I stopped painting due to existential trauma (2000).
My original interests ranged from light political statements (local PR issues) to German Expressionism (art history) to figure painting explorations (segmented body parts). Now, my interests have turned to addressing social issues and the Hispanic diaspora. I'm back.
