Urban Impressionism

How long did it take to complete this piece? What is your art process?
3-4 hours to complete. Its based on layers, starting with the cool color first, then working in mid tones and layering in highlights.
Work through that process up and down about 3 times.

Where else can we see your art?
Art shows around Orlando. Installation at Aloft in Downtown Orlando.
City Arts Factory.
Own a store called Culture Xchange in the Fashion Square Mall.

Where are you from?
Grew up in Honduras, moved to Miami as a kid for about 10 years. Moved to Orlando to be with family.

What does it mean to you to be a part of the growing art culture in Orlando?
I love being apart of the pioneering phase in Orlando. We get to instill the idea of positive expression in the local community.

How did you get into art?
I got into it for expression purposes. When I moved here from Honduras I couldn't speak much English so I used art to express and communicate. I remember sitting in the back of my classes and doodling in my books when I was a kid.
