Adolfo Santos' Profile

About

Hello, my name is Adolfo Santos and I'm a retired CEO spending most of my free time painting these calm and dramatic abstract depictions of scenes from my life and surroundings, the USA and its unconditional beauty as I see it from my home beaches to mountains and lakes across this nation.

I mostly use palette knives rather than brushes, I suppose I like to consider myself a simple artist with the finest oils and a rag.

Every piece of work is handmade by me... from the wooden stretcher bars to the sizing and wrapping of my canvas. I practice traditional techniques to produce only the highest quality products like the use of Linen fabric as support protected by a PVA and primed with an oil ground. My technique is a 2 week process to prepare. This method allows the oils to lay lusciously on top separated from the fabric for added brightness, glamour and texture as well as ensure it will last lifetimes to come. All my work is accompanied by an original Certificate of Authentication.
