Artist Bio
Carlos Grasso, an Argentinian native, is gaining notoriety for his “Mind Tapestries” series, his immersive installations and his previous “Canvas Deconstruction” paintings, also known as his “shredded” series. He has spent over 45 years abroad in France and the United States, where he has not only transitioned from a professional musician to a full-time artist, but also moved from representational art (which he studied under master David Leffel) to abstraction, mixed media, installations, and conceptual art.

In his studio in Ojai, California, one can find torn canvases, found objects, and disproportionately large brushes – the tools of an inquisitive and imaginative mind. With these, Carlos weaves a variety of stories and employs a range of techniques.

Throughout the years, Carlos has exhibited his work in numerous museums and galleries, including the LA Art Show, The Museum of Ventura County, The Santa Paula Museum, Ojai Valley Museum, Art Share L.A., OCCCA (Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts), Building Bridges (Santa Monica, LA, Bergamot Station), and the San Diego Art Institute. His collectors can be found all across the United States.
