He approaches art thanks to his father, a famous sculptor in his country of origin and in France.
After his primary studies he moved to Milan, where he finished his artistic institute and later the degree of painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera. In Milan, you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the entire history of art, choosing as sources of inspiration the Baroque and Romanticism, together with the abstract and informal Art of the Vanguards passing through the Surrealism, paths that it soon abandons due to the continuous investigation in what is “Organic Painting” being (for him) “the most direct path between reason and spirit” focusing his work on an inner search sustained in the theories of C. G. Jung and Lacan, among others.
Based on psychoanalytic techniques, such as slips, the free eidetic association or symbolization (always applying them to the pictorial), creates works that each viewer adapts to their psyche through a active observation, so that, through pareidolia, each person “create” his own work, going beyond what may at first sight look like a stain on the canvas.
In addition, his academic training allows him to make paintings respecting the tradition of the great masters of the past, too, mixing techniques and periods coming to make contemporary “Frescos”.
In addition, Carlos has founded two galleries, one in Milan and the other virtual, in which he exhibited artists from all over the world during the pandemic period.
