BIO Carlos Tirado- The Biography of the Artist
"I identify myself with those who perceive art as the expression of an individual in a specific and unique moment of one’s life. I would describe my style as “abstract expressionism” moving sometimes into “figurative abstractionism” with an intense and colorful palette, including contrast and textures that invite the spectator to reflect about its form and meaning." -Carlos J Tirado

Carlos Tirado found his love for the arts when he was a really young boy in Caracas, Venezuela, his birthplace. When it was time to decide his future career, he pleased his parents by going to law school and becoming a lawyer, but he kept studying the arts and following his passion. A few years ago he moved to Doral, Florida where he opened his studio and teaches art at South Florida Art School. His main line of work is abstract-- creating texture by adding pigments or experimenting with different type of sands. He gets inspiration by the organic form of nature. His work is impeccable and invites you to look deeply at its details, colors and textures. By combining precise colors to create a unique color palette, each of his paintings has a different mood and takes you to a different place. While admiring his pieces, let your mind fly free into your imagination and a whole new reality of thoughts!

In addition to his abstract work, Carlos Tirado is also attracted to pop art. He uses antipixel techniques as a form of expression, and recently created the “Serie de fondo” in which he paints portraits of public figures and international celebrities using palette knife and oil paint.
