Art in Des Moines, Iowa

New Works by Edgard Camacho

Opening Reception Friday December 14th from 6-9pm. Show runs from Dec 14th thru Jan 2nd.

Edgard Camacho was born in Venezuela in 1979. Since an early age he developed an interest in figurative art and The Latin New Figuration, although he did not officially begin his art career until his early twenties.

He rapidly became part of the list of “Best Upcoming Contemporary Artists” by the National Culture Center in Venezuela, a recognition that helped him to show nationally and internationally. In 2004 he was forced to move to United States of America and later relocated to Fairfield, Iowa in 2012. He earned a BFA from Maharishi University of Management in 2015 under the advisory of artist Jim Shrosbree. Learning Transcendental Meditation turned Camacho`s figurative art approaches into abstractions: He switched from forms into shapes and from backgrounds into planes.

The Venezuelan artist moves around these two constant elements to understand dimension and space, not only to do paintings, but “Visual investigations”. He currently lives and works in Des Moines, IA and is represented by Olson Larsen Galleries in Valley Junction.
