Cesar Santos has been called a "Modern Day Master." He uses modern and classical painting techniques to create interesting modern images that make you think. I think his work is quirky - which I like.
There are throwbacks in his artwork to renaissance masters like Michelangelo and surreal painters like Salvador Dali. If you look at his art, there are many layers and symbols contained in it. It's a mixture of modern and classic.
Santos was born in Santa Clara, Cuba in 1982. He graduated from Miami Dade College and continued his education in Europe where he honed his "Old Master" chops. You can find him featured in American Artist, Miami Dade Forum, American Art Collector, Artist Daily, and many other publications.
He is also an enthusiastic and animated presenter who can riff about art at the drop of a hat. I like watching his art videos on YouTube. You can easily access his videos on his website as well. In this video, he talks about his show in Los Angeles called "Syncretism."
Syncretism: "The amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought."
You can find his work and his videos on the internet at the following places.
