Andres Valencia

Andres Valencia (b. 2011) is a California-based contemporary artist known for large, dramatic, colorful figurative paintings that are deeply influenced by Cubism. Valencia has been painting since he was five years old, He stands on a step ladder to create large-scale works with a mix of oil stick, and oil and acrylic paint, seeking to create bold colors and wildly imaginative fragmented facial compositions. Teachers involved in his California public school Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) program quickly identified his extraordinary talent.
