Once in a while you find a Rare Talent in the World of Art to me is called Carlitos but to others he’s called Carlos Santiago Know who is Carlos Santiago? Well word are hard to express his genius to me I consider him an Abstract Expresionist painter with a strong influence of non other than Julio Rosado del Valle. It is needless to say his education which is compose by a Bachelor and a Master in Art with a 2 years studies experience in Paris plus one of the greatest mentor Alfonso Arana, His paint its the expression of a dark radiant color structure Composition. Now!!! What is the quality that bring my attention to his painting? Diversity, I haven’t seen a Artist who has so many diferent themes but maintaining the same patterns of composition using black color. He’s best works are composed by Las Madonas, Traffics, Flowers, Monotypes and Many More!!!
Many people that are starting collection ask me on which artist they should invest, And I always give them the Same Answear Carlitos. Once they see his work the rest is history, and I think that this is part of the magic on his paintings. Most of his painting are in Large Format while He also works small size sculpture with compositional similarity to his painting.
“Florero” is one of his First works on the composition of flower vases and You can see clearly that this kind of work has a magical sense to it, when you start visualizing dark tone with the fusion of all the 4 types of blues selected by me for this piece, the final result was magnificent. This is Why I consider Time is Favoring Carlos Santiago because with the pass of time his work have mature into monumental masterpieces that in a near future we will “ahhh” in the presence of the Them. In my opinion Carlos Santiago will surely become the next Rosado del Valle of our Generation here in Puerto Rico.
