  • Description
    Teo has always drawn to and was attracted by photography, design, and whatever other two dimensional types of artistic expression there might be, but it was not until he was twenty years old that it became obvious to him that he was a painter.

    At the end of 1990, he developed his signature style -- works that consist of thousands of drops of water, arranged into a grid pattern, inside of which a small amount of ink or enamel was dropped and left to dry.

    He moved to Southern California the following year, and within a month he produced 3036 Gotas de Tinta-- the first piece to ever enter the permanent collection of a museum when it was acquired by New York's Museum of Modern Art.

    He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in art from California State University in 1997. Two years later, he moved to Brooklyn, NY, where he currently lives and works.

    For more than twenty-five years, he has relied on the grid to serve as the foundation for all of his work, building layers of carefully plotted individual cells which are then filled with drops of color. The end result is a topography of undulating patterns and glistening surfaces.

    Although the use of the pictorial field and exploration of color in his work draws many comparisons to Abstract Expressionists such as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, his grids and working process bring to mind Minimal artists such as Agnes Martin and Sol Lewitt.
