Santiago Cohen: Out and In

I am painting in a large space either with a colored background, with black outline figures (so they are not of any race), or outline reverse on black background. They are symbolic images of a family either having dinner or watching TV. The images are high contrast and they will have small areas of rendered color images of a South Orange building, and an orange depicted on one of the paintings or the TV. The whole image will be a pleasant composition of color and graphic symbols.

Artist / Group Bio: Santiago has art shows in galleries in New York, New Jersey and Mexico. He finished a biography painted in an ex-voto style called ExVida with over 1150 oil paintings, having shown it as an installation project at the Hunterdon Art Museum.

Type Of Media: Painting
