J Carlos Pinto is a self represented artist from Guatemala who has been working for the past 10 years in New York, and his art is as expressive as his native and lush, colorful Central American nation. Pinto’s artwork is also poignantly aggressive and projects a revolutionary declaration. The scope of his art covers abstract painting, tile work, wood work, stencil spray, and use of non-biodegradable plastic and glass. Most of Pinto’s media comes from salvaged material and found objects
Pinto’s art exudes confidence, energy and challenge. It draws one into a dual world of playfulness and social responsibility. His legacy, as he sees it, is to be known as an artist who demands change to a Green Revolution.
Directed by Alexander Escobar & Gabriel Adderley.
