Al Torres

Considered to be one of the only artists in the United States to continue on in the painting genre started by Yaacov Agam, Torres has taken on the challenge to proceed further in this style. He is doing this in a representational manner. The visual effect in this genre of painting, is perceived as movement. Revealing and concealing at the spectator’s pace. Incredibly, he paints directly onto the painting surface which are aluminum angles at 45 degrees! Torres received his MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art (cum laude) – he trained with renowned realists such as Steven Assael and Vincient Desiderio. He was the head studio assistant for the nationally known portrait painter Sharon Sprung for seven years at the Art Students League of New York. He has trained with the realist painters Bennett Vadnais and Andrew Reiss. His work has been exhibited in venues such as the Gaston County Museum, Dallas, NC, The Cape Cod Museum of Art, Cape Cod, MA., The Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY, the Reading Public Museum, Reading, PA, the Queens Museum of Art, NYC, the Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC and Sotheby's Auction House, NYC. He recently won a 2018 Mecklenburg Regional Artist Grant. In January of 2019 he will be having a one person exhibition at the Rauch Gallery in Dallas, NC. He is an Art Instructor at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC. Torres has an active studio in Huntersville. NC.
