Me and my work
I began my design exploration when I was very young, for as far as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by forms and colours. This interest was enriched by training and working as a Visual designer where I learned the behavior of colours, shapes and layers.
The experience I gained in this trade is invaluable to me, it has helped me to work on my pieces to a very high standard. My paintings demand multiple layers, precision and colour accuracy to achieve the desire result.
I like building my work in an abstract form, using oils and acrylics, assembling the painting with forms and colours that appear fragmented, giving each piece a three-dimensional visual experience. Achieving this style although sometimes it might seem like a fortunate stroke of serendipity, it is actually the result of many hours of trial and error, a style that it is continuously evolving!
All my works are signed, ready to hang and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
My paintings have been sold to collectors in Spain, UK, Germany, The Netherlands, USA, Mexico and Australia.
I accept commissions. Anything you like! Whether it’s a portrait, an abstract to fill that empty space above your fireplace, either for revisiting the sources of artworks that have sold before, or painting new work. just give me a clear idea of your requirements - you can also send photos to give me a better idea.
"The paintings of Antonio Cruz look like they have been built slowly and piece by piece. Polygonal shapes seem to fit together to form part of a general virtual conception. Harmonious colors, triangles and polygons, shadow and light playing together, compose Antonio’s painting game. His artistic expression is intense with vivid colors and has the characteristics of the crystal structure of a gemstone".
