Santanna's story

I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. During recent years, I have developed an interest in the history of various art cultures. I am strongly inspired and fascinated by the old masters of the Renaissance period, due to the subject matter, emotion, and physical anguish that was expressed in their works. This fascination has led me to the practice of a variety of art styles and techniques such as contemporary, surrealism, still life, relief sculptures, and work-studies of Renaissance art. The idea behind my style of art is an attempt to allow the viewer to peruse into my realm of imagination that is expressed on canvas. In my opinion, art is the perception of one’s own reality transformed through thought, vision, and emotion. I believe art has the power to inspire, overwhelm, and challenge the human mind. Therefore, in my paintings I endeavor to provoke the viewer to suggest the theory behind my creations. The love and passion I feel for the Arts has compelled me to start my own art gallery. The purpose of opening Santanna’s Art Gallery is to preserve the Arts by providing high quality artwork at easily affordable prices that will inspire and open a person’s mind to all the infinite possibilities in life.
