A brief, cultural history
(and the artist’s mission statement)
Born in San Jose, Costa Rica and raised in Yukon, Oklahoma, Carlos Barboza has been immersed in and dedicated to the visual arts from a very early age. Beginning with an iron-fisted obsession for both film and the filmmaking process, Carlos's artwork has always been character-driven and inspired by cinematic imagery.
Currently residing in Oklahoma City, Carlos is dedicated to his craftsmanship as an artist. Constantly learning new mediums, from digital illustration to traditional pencil-on-paper, from large-scale mural painting to branding, his curiosity as an artist is always evolving. Nevertheless, he continually strives to create the illusion of life in his characters' eyes, allowing the detailed textures to disclose their own stories.
