Artist Bio:
Eduardo was born in Santander, a city on the north coast of Spain, in 1973. He earned a Master's degree in fine art from the University of Fine Arts in Salamanca in 1996 and then moved to Passau, Germany and began his life as a full-time artist, selling still lives of flowers and fruits and painting portraits by commission. After a year in Portugal and a sojourn to China and Tibet, Eduardo moved to New York City. His paintings have been exhibited in the United States, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria and Portugal. In New York, Eduardo has exhibited in galleries, cultural centers, restaurants, nightclubs, on the streets of Manhattan and in his Open Studio Series in Long Island City, Queens.

Artist Statement:
I paint, working mostly with oils and acrylics.

I tend to gravitate around some particular subjects, such as portraits, nudes, pedestrian... seeking a dialogue between abstract and figurative elements.

In terms of technique I like to address the relationship between figure and background through the use of negative space, gesture in the brushstroke and geometry...trying to make it all work together to create a sense of coherence.
