Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
McColl Fine Art, a premier fine art gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina, is pleased to announce that they are now representing Peruvian artist, Carlos Madrid. Mr. Madrid is a painter of the classical tradition and specializes in oil painting and drawing technique. His goal as an artist is to emulate and recreate the timeless craftsmanship and content found in the work of the Great Masters.
"Since 1980, I have dedicated myself completely to mastering the drawing and painting techniques of the past, including the egg tempera-oil mixed technique which I learned from the painter Ernst Fuchs in Austria," said Mr. Madrid. "My guides are the great Masters of the past and I am totally committed to the achievement of excellence in my craft and to the tradition of story telling through images."
Carlos Madrid has studied with numerous masters in prestigious schools, including The Florence Academy of Art, Jacob Collins, The New York Academy of Figurative Art, The Art Students League of New York and Parsons School of Design. He has lived and worked in 10 different countries and has extensive teaching experience in the United States, Norway and Italy.
"We are pleased to welcome Carlos Madrid to the gallery and also congratulate him for his recent success at the Houston Art show," said Joe Panarelli of McColl Fine Art.
