Glenda Santiago is an accomplished artist living in Luquillo, Puerto Rico. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Florida International University in Miami. With a minor in Art History, she studied the techniques developed by the Baroque and Expressionist painters expanding on these techniques she creates an interesting psychological tension in her own work.
“For me to express my complex issues and ideas, I need to reduce them to a simplified concept, or metaphor. I then paint them in a way that is straightforward using bold and arbitrary color to convey states of mind. With the use of color, I pull the viewer into the painting through my expressions of the universals of life, as I discover them. These universals are filtered through my own unique life experiences and then interpreted through my artistic technique, creating a way for my life and my art to coexist”.
