ABOUT THE ARTIST
Edgardo Abello was born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 1961. As a boy, he would watch his father paint scenes of their colorful life in the tropical city. Edgardo enjoyed painting and drawing, but for practical reasons, his father steered him in the direction of architecture. He came to United States in 1978. Here he attended Montgomery College in Maryland to study architecture. He began working for an Architect as an architectural perspectivist and after just a few years in the business, started his own company called Artistic Visions, Inc. He spent most of his working hours producing a whole spectrum of architectural presentations, from new homes sales office displays to virtual animations for builders, architects and interior designers. Edgardo's painting ability and knowledge of architecture gave him the perfect recipe for a successful architectural rendering business. Recently, Edgardo has decided to dedicate himself to the kind of painting that he has always known he was capable of but never had the time to complete. Without the extremely tight deadlines of the commercial arts, Edgardo dedicates more time to the fine details found in his paintings. His beautiful works are achieved through his appreciation and understanding of color and light and also because of careful study of the subjects he paints.
Edgardo is currently showing at Gallery 14 in Vero Beach, Florida and The Springfield Museum of Fine Arts through January 4th 2015.
