Statement

People often ask me, “why the tears?”. Tears are a sign of strength. We all go through struggles in life. No matter how rich or poor, problems are not reserved for anyone in particular; everybody must deal with them. Life is about overcoming hurdles, conquering fears, and achieving your goals.

I often paint celebrities for this reason. We tend to think that because of fame and wealth, their life is somehow easier than ours. We forget the path they had to take to get there, which is always filled with obstacles, pain, and suffering. Everybody has their own fights in life.

Sometimes tears are of happiness, sometimes of anger, sometimes of sadness. Tears demonstrate strong emotions, no matter what triggered them. My inspiration comes from many different places, but usually from my subconscious and dreams. My goal is to have people connect to my paintings in their own way. We all think differently, and we all have different sentiments, but we all have shared tears at one point or another. “I dream in paint.” -- GusColors

 

Biography

GusColors has painted with brilliant colors since his formative years in Managua, Nicaragua. He witnessed a country that was poverty-stricken and politically unstable. As a teenager he knew his future was uncertain, so he set his eyes on the United States. As soon as he arrived in Miami, Florida he was welcomed with the beauty and vibrancy of the city’s beaches and nightlife – a major source of inspiration.

Since beginning his journey in Miami, GusColors has developed a unique and varied career. He has participated in over 10 major art fairs in the United States including Spectrum Miami, Art Expo New York and Aqua Art Miami, as well as an international fair in Ferrara, Italy. GusColors has exhibited in galleries such as Art Fusion Galleries, has been featured in publications such as Miami New Times, and has become an integral part of the Miami art scene completing murals for Volkswagen and Miami Heat basketball player Alonso Mourning’s Overtown Youth Center, among others.

One of his most recent achievements is The Pineapple Project, a solo exhibition in Wynwood, Miami’s renowned Arts District where he celebrated the power of art over war, donating proceeds to those in need in Nicaragua with the help of non-profit organization ANF after violence erupted in the country. GusColors continues to expand the scope of his art through the launch of two unique clothing brands which are now being sold in stores throughout the city.

GusColors has the natural gift of capturing the external world with wit, purpose and precision. Through vibrant characters, color choices and use of multiple canvases GusColors strays from the esoteric expectations of pop art, combining both elements of the conscious and subconscious mind. His art simultaneously brings together innocence and mischievousness, light and obscure creating a deeper connection to our emotions. GusColors is more than another style of contemporary art, it is a thought-provoking medium you can share and be a part of.
