SANTIAGO

Santiago is a self made artist and regular processes and norms go out the window. For him there are no rules in art and that's the way he likes it. He is known for being multifaceted and fearlessly incorporating new ideas and techniques into his work.

 

Specialty: Abstract

Favorite Mediums: Acrylic & Mixed Media

Why Pura Vida?  

Santiago first learned of the motto 'Pura Vida' on a visit to Costa Rica with his father many years ago and it connects his family to this day. He pours this energy into his artwork and hopes to inspire others to create and nurture their soul.
