About Felix Berroa

Felix Berroa paints to express his passion for life, death, and the dreams of all humans. He started drawing and carving when he was a child, and has been fascinated by the human figure ever since. Though he began making work that was more realistic, his current practice abstracts his figures into dreamlike characters. Vibrant yet subtle hues saturate each image, as does a complex narrative that addresses the many sides of humanity. Berroa uses large fields of color in combination with intricate line work, which he says is inspired by his experience working as an etcher. With his main focus on women and children, Berroa works to illuminate the tender beauty and life giving ability to those often exploited.

Dominican, b. 1952, San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic, based in Atlanta, Georgia
