Art Brokerage: Carlos J. Tirado Venezuelan Artist: b. 1964. Carlos J. Tirado (born on April 3, 1964 in Caracas, Venezuela) is an artist, painter and sculptor who has developed a very personal and precise line of work linked to Neo-Pop art and Abstract Art. Tirado agrees that he feels an attraction towards Pop-art . One of his major impulses has been to humanize those mass-reaching characters like comic characters, with common problems as any individual living in an everyday environment. Nevertheless, his major contribution has been his personal language representing these themes, which indeed resembles Pop Art, but with a twist that Tirado has been able to accomplish after years of investigation and research. In search of his own expression, he decided to recycle an already existing man-made material, changing its original purpose. He opts to use an approximate 600-pantone-color chart from exterior paints at home improvement stores. The strategic combination of these samples based on the principles of collage: cutting and pasting produce a marvelous pixel-like image of outstanding beauty and allure. In the digital realm, a pixel is the smallest chromatic unit of an image. In Tirado artistic expression this concept is inverted creating an interesting game as a result of his investigation. He manually cuts one-color pieces, positions and pastes them over the canvas, looking to create a desired image. In some instances, he applies small touches of color over the canvases. This technique, also known as “anti-pixel” by some art critique, simulates the pixelated look of an over-zoomed digital picture; however, when viewed in detail, is clear that the process is very different in Tirado work, as he begins breaking the digital logic: instead of taking the image to its minimum chromatic expression, he builds off that minimum expression.
