Carlos Grasso: Contemporary Art

Updated: Feb 18

I usually greet collectors, curators and visitors to my studio with a “welcome to my playground!” My art requires the essential element of play, whether designing my own colorful modern mandalas on paper and canvas, cutting and shredding painted the canvas by hand, or assembling found objects on textured panels. The more I get out of my own way, the more creativity flows unobstructed and strangely enough, the more I control my medium.

Artists—in all branches and disciplines—are the preeminent voice of both the collective and the individual unconscious. Art brings to the surface, to our awareness, all the processes that run deep, embedded, and often silently ignored within. As the ancient philosopher once said, “the unexamined life is not worth living."

Over the years, I has participated in numerous Museum and Gallery shows: LA Art Show – The Museum of Ventura County – The Santa Paula Museum – Ojai Valley Museum – Art Share L.A. – OCCCA (Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts) – Building Bridges (Santa Monica, LA, Bergamot Station) – San Diego Art Institute, and many more. My collector base spreads throughout the United States.
