Carlos Vargas was born in Miami, Florida and attended UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte), receiving a B.F.A. in Art ,with concentrations in graphic design and digital media, in 2018 . His body of work ranges from graphic design to experimental video to even digital paintings . Carlos recently presented one of his video pieces (To + Fro) at the annual Digital Graffiti festival in Alys Beach, Fl. Carlos' main inspiration comes from stories. Since he was a little kid, Carlos would read fantasy stories and and analyze them. This analysis would become the basis of each and every one of his pieces. When not creating work, Carlos is playing or running tabletop games with his friends.
All artist have their own style when it comes to art. Picasso had cubism. Andrew Warhol had Pop Art. I have Ink blots. This series is an ongoing collection of self-expression. These ink blots are not created but rather form when I reach a state of relaxation. Because of this, no two ink blots are exactly the same much like no two moments in life are ever the same. My goal in this series is to present the viewer with a glimpse into who I am both as a person and as an artist.
