''My artwork is a way of communicating the silence that is inside each of us,
filling the world with peace and harmony.
This Colombian-born artist gained a unique perspective on the energy and spirituality of the human condition while studying as an anthropology student at Universidad Nacional Bogota, where he ultimately redirected his ambitions and graduated with a Degree in Art, becoming a Master Painter.
It is this unique background and his intimate exposure to the artifacts of the ancients that inspire Carlos' unique use of textures and warm earth-tones in his works. The energetic magnetism that is so obvious in each piece cannot help but evoke an emotional response from the viewer, a sense of spirituality from deep within, perhaps even the same type of spiritual feeling that Carlos himself experienced at dig sites in his native Colombia as a student.
Having had one-man showings in such diverse localities as Mexico City and Torreon, Mexico; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Milan, Italy; San Francisco and Santa Monica, California; and Atlanta, Georgia; Torres has settled on the United States as his portal to the world.
