Editor Eduardo Peña Bastidas

The artist believes that has always liked the painting. Never had to think what to do in life, it would be a painter and that has been and expects to remain so for the rest of his life, and if there are other lives, humbly ask the Almighty to let him continue to be a painter, therefore one lifetime is not enough for this purpose. The painter thanked God and their teachers in the sixties it corresponded to the lot, between those who wish to name Adriano Moreno, Luis Aragon Varela, Leandro Velasco, Lucy Tejada, Hernando Tejada, Brainos Armando, Pablo Galvez, Daniel Romero, Yesid Mountain, Susana Lopez and many more for which you have the deepest appreciation for helping him crystallize his dreams of becoming a painter who lives to paint and also lives what he paints. This also thank the Institute of Popular Culture and its directors, then, that as a government institution is the most beautiful thoughts come true for its founders, as before, now and in future will continue to forge people able to express themselves artistically in favor of a society who need it very urgently. As for his painting, he thinks that it has developed in an evolutionary manner with influences inevitable at first and then casual. However, this has not been an impediment to progress and to define their own work to achieve criterion impose his artistic expression. All this learning tinged with teaching early, giving himself what others gave him and his students also learn in the same institution that shaped him and others who required their services. Today is still working on the painting, facing the responsibility with those who gained since its inception have acquired one of his works. Continues to evolve, improve thinking intellectually and conceptually. This is reflected in his work, for your sake, that of his and the community in which they live.
