An Interview with Angel Reyes.
Who and where are you from?
My name is Angel Reyes, I was born and raised in Puerto Rico where I'm currently living.
How you got into this?
Since I can remember, I've been fascinated with drawing and sketching. At a very young age I started drawing everything that caught my eye every time I had an opportunity, and I've always been charmed by the fact that you can mimic anything you see with just a pencil and/or some pigments on a blank sheet of paper or canvas, or any other surface for that matter. But I wasn't serious about it until I saw an instructional video from a famous artist on YouTube in 2013. I was just mesmerized by the way he created this amazing works of art just with the pallet knife and some oil paints. At that moment I decided I wanted to do that for a living.
What is your driving force?
I'm driven by the colorful essence and beauty of everything in the process of life.
What kind of work you do?
As time passed I have developed my own painting style through experimentation and constant learning and practice. So most of my work could be considered as abstract expressionism and neo figurative.
Why you do it?
I like to bend and break rules. There's no boundaries to what can be create as an abstract expressionistic artist.
What media and technique do you use?
I prefer acrylic paint but I also use digital software. Mainly I use pallet knife or mixed technique.
