MBB: Walk Up Gallery Window Artist: Armando Soto

Armando Soto is our featured artist for the month of October. The Walk Up Gallery Window is on the River Street side of the store and is viewable 24 hours a day. 

Artist's Statement

My paintings and drawings are inspired by the Tainos, the indigenous people of Puerto Rico, as well as by aspects of traditional Spanish folk art and African art. As a Nuyorican, I like to explore influences from the art, symbols and traditions of these aboriginal cultures through a contemporary viewpoint often relating to my own life experiences.

My work is a mixture of both traditional and contemporary religious, musical and literary freferences. With the use of bright colors and bold forms, I create a visually poetic world somewhere between the past and present, bound by powerful, metaphysical forces of belief and custom.
