INTERVIEW WITH CARLOS PORTILLO
How would you define your style? Neoexpressionist
You want to share something about your beginnings?
My early take direction most of all to music mainly singing, profession until today I exercise, but within the pictorial field and drawing was all thanks to my father who always work with silkscreen, fences and other branches covering advertising, I always liked drawing, and especially the color always filled me as a child, when you get to high school as a good clueless teenager could not get college career studying and it was my mother knowing my gifts and ease of painting who motivates me to study visual arts at the university of the Andes Merida Venezuela gradually went on track and knowing the great artists of the renaissance and the avant-garde, it was not easy to find as an artist inquire rather than as they say here colloquially “di hits the spot” and when I touch the senses German expressionism, characters, strokes and stop counting a rather broad world in which I plunged and so far I feel a love for this art movement.
Describe your work
Mainly my work is based on personal experiences and many cases of everyday life, in which we get different characters that have different feelings and emotions the explanation is easy because my country Venezuela is going through a really complex situation for each of its inhabitants and by a number of colors and textures I forming compositions in order to immerse the viewer in the social problem of each of the characters.
