Carlos León Salazar, 1968 | Watercolour painter

Venezuelan painter Carlos León-Salazar was born in Caracas.
"I am a lawyer by profession, in relation to the arts - self-taught.
For me, art is the need to accompany me since childhood, is a way to express himself, or rather, to find himself through him, as a very intimate and personal appearance, to find himself through art, music and literature. In short, I do creative work, because I like it because I love it.
And when I discovered watercolor, all last time I do it because plastic watercolor is consistent with the sensations and feelings that I experience".

If I close my eyes, I still can smell the perfume of the rows of vines, the fragrance of the olives and the almonds.
I immediately began to reproduce what I could see onto drawing sheets, which my grandfather would give me. Soon, I moved to Milan with my family, leaving behind my roots and my love for the region. I was passionate about painting; I studied the painting’s techniques of the greatest painters of 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
