HECTOR PRADO ARTIST




“One day I found myself in front of a blank canvas, I thought that day
I would begin an art work, but that day I begin a new life instead”

PROVOKING EMOTIONS
IN FULL COLOR
 

There is a touch of seduction in what I paint as there is in all fantastic realism art, my gamma of colors are emotions and impulses that ignite an uncontrollable desire of creativity.

People are at the core of the exhibited series "Mentors". Through the use of his typical strong and contrasting palette of colors, the spontaneous realist probes the characters of unique personalities. He has already created portraits of Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe, Jesus, and many more. All of these extraordinary characters have one thing in common, they are “Rule breakers”.

Prado is a remarkably powerful and energetic artist. His special kind of "Alegria Colors" include a driving element that is almost musical as he allows the brush to dance.
