Antonio Carreño was born 1963 in the Dominican Republic and attended the National School of Art in its capital, Santo Domingo. He Migrated to the United States in 1980 and furthered his studies at the Art Students League in New York where he continued painting Latin American surrealism art.
Carreño creates a world full of spirituality through his art. In this world you can see words within the carefully executed brush strokes and feel emotions emit from the paintings. Abstraction is what gave Antonio a platform to express himself while letting the art speak to the viewer in its own personal way.
Carreño has sold several artworks at auctions including “She as Constellation #2” at Bonhams & Butterfields, Los Angeles and more at Sunset Estate Auction in 2011. He has been featured in articles like “Morris Museum Executive Director Curates: Abstract Art from the Permanent Collection”, written for ArtDaily in 2009.
