Carlos Ponce

"My work is a combination of nature with sand and sea water. Ocean water, horseshoe crabs cast off, shells, sand, pebbles, and other beach materials with seasonal colors reflecting the changes in life and sunlight transforming acrylic colors and providing a unique texture."

The River - Mixed media painting (beach sand, glass, pebbles, and acrylic) 20 x 20 in.

Mixed Media Artist, Carlos Ponce was born in Venezuela and lives in the USA. With a practice that includes a diverse variety of media, Carlos is committed to achieving visual innovation and beauty by using acrylic, sand, and other materials to reflect the light and multiple stories behind every painting.

The artist's extensive portfolio combines multiple elements with sand and acrylic. Different poems provide the soul of every painting. Each painting reflects the moods, environment and different holistic experiences in an interaction among the elements. Moving from a hobby to a more in-depth experience. Painting on the beach gives texture, light and inspiration to every art piece.
