Roberto Sanchez

Description

A DJ and entrepreneur by trade but creatively, a self-taught artist.

Sanchez works are primarily expressionistic, dramatic portraits replete with distorted, thick lines and incongruous forming gnarly surfaces of painted faces. This artist duly approaches his paintings with a process that aims to capture the essence of the portrait subjects. While he technically addresses physicality and form, he is keenly interested to understand and capture in his canvas real presences from his subjects.

He takes particular cue with the eyes which for him spells and define the character of the subjects. And even if the frames are still unfinished, they already evoke such entrancing stillness, energies and completeness. They have the ability to charm and confuse. He finds affirmation when his painted subjects find themselves in his work as they connect with their painted likeness in canvas.
