Statement

Carlos Martyn Burgos (born 1978) was brought up within two cultures - in the United Kingdom & El Salvador - that helped fuel and form his imagination and outlook of the world around him, his work shows the combination of these two worlds.

Carlos M Burgos is a figurative artist exploring aspects of the way we live and our emotions. But not necessarily the obvious outward appearances and goings on, but those within. An often surreal look of how we interact within this environment with traces of satire. Carlos offers an alternative glimpse of the urban world around us. Images that manifest themselves through our feelings, opinions and social environments but are not always acknowledged. A conceptual realism.

Presenting the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it for emotional effect to evoke moods or ideas, meaning or emotional experience.
Drawing inspiration from social history, literature, music, conversations and general popular culture. Fusing elements of the classical, the expressive, the sureal, beauty, darkness and his love of the human form.
