Artwork by Lorenzo
As a Hispanic artist who has left footprints in New York, L.A., and now, back home in Chicago, my work has grown to reflect the struggles and happiness of my many experiences.
Painting from a young age was my soul-seeking destination.
My urban environment has always lived within my art. A world of many colors and curves, bringing together an unbridled energy.
The great artists of our time stylistically have always been a part of my inspiration and will continue to guide my hand through each work of art.
Acrylic has always been my choice of medium largely due in fact to its quick drying properties. This characteristic has allowed me to react to my instincts in a vehement and spontaneous manner without being percipitous in my actions. Thus, allowing my true feelings to surface effortlessly in my art.
My Artist Statement
My art begins as a journey of exploration, anticipation,excitement and fear. As these thoughts start to take on a visual form, the choice of line, curve, exaggeration or simplicity, becomes the true expression that lives within the symbolism and imagery of all my work.
Sometimes unpredictable, my sub conscience or conscience self, chooses its subject with an awareness of each piece. Therefore it becomes increasingly clear to me, that my art lives as a reflection of my own existence and the world around me.
The choice of color in my work (or lack thereof...) motivates and drives each story forward; based on either religion, culture, desire, love, passion, selfishness, thoughtfulness or all of the above.
Each piece of work has its own unique story...
