About Bobby Cruz
Painter, sculptor, draftsman and creator of installations. Obtains in 2008 a Bachelor’s Degree in Painting from Escuela de Artes Plásticas in Puerto Rico. During his career as an artist, he has exposed in multiple group exhibits at diverse galleries on the Island and his work has been exposed in contemporary art fairs at United States, among other countries. Had his first solo exhibition in 2009. Cruz brings the painting medium to another level, leaving a mark with his particular style, expressing himself beyond the canvas. He is recognized by his colorful paintings of bicycles and classic cars with linear and protruding strokes of paint. He also works sculpture, always maintaining his discourse by employing objects popular in character that possess collectable potential. The artist reveals his eagerness for the collection of pet objects, transforming them through his work into one more collector’s item. Last year, Cruz received the Beca Lexus for artists.
