“What some might see as nothing but a thorn piece of canvas or a rusty sheet of metal to be discarded, I visualize as the perfect ingredient for my next piece of work. What others might view as worthless scraps of wood or slit fabric, I envision as works of art.

Carlos Grasso studied Music, Graphic Arts and Painting in Buenos Aires, Paris and Los Angeles. Visiting his studio one experiences the broad range of his work: abstract, representational, minimalist, expressionist, monochromatic, colorful… defining him as a visually insatiable experimental artist. He can be a staunch realistic or an explosive expressionist, a minimalist or a mixed media textural explorer. He is not confined to any medium, adapting his methods to his concepts, shifting easily between paint, mixed media and conceptual work.
