Southwest Gallery presents Meet the Artist: Roberto Ugalde
Southwest Gallery will present Roberto Ugalde, an expert oil painter who expresses the essence of his subjects in a way that draws viewers into his paintings. He masters the use of oils in an impressionistic manner that breathes life too his landscapes and figures. He was born in Queretaro, Mexico and has loved to draw and paint since he was a boy. His love for art guided him to study at the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes INBA in Queretaro, Mexico. He then began showing and selling his work through commissions and galleries throughout the United States and Mexico.
Ugalde’s use of oil in an impressionistic manner is applied mostly with palette knife using brilliant and heavy paint strokes. This allows him to experiment with industrial liquid oil paint by dropping it on to board. His technique enables him to navigate form impressionistic landscapes to abstract landscapes.
