Magical realism and illusion in Carlos Cancio

Carlos Cancio He is an artist who has traveled many paths in the great village of the world. His visual, intellectual and emotional stimuli in the vibrant and colorful Puerto Rico, to which he opened his eyes for the first time, would eventually intersect with landscapes from other places that would leave a decisive retinal and emotional imprint.

Thus, he cradled in his mind, and created, worlds and situations in which Europe, India, the United States, Latin America and Asia were amalgamated into a single path in which geographical boundaries were blurred, leaving powerful realities on the canvas. who dresses in the clothing of illusion. Cancio is, therefore, a painter of multiform influences who does not allow himself to become the servant of a formal trajectory, and who equally embraces in his thoughts and in his brushstrokes the best surrealist tradition, with markedly dreamlike images; symbolists; abstract in their chromatic richness and fluid shapes; and in his very own plastic expression of literary magical realism that became known mainly by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his magnum opus, “One Hundred Years of Solitude.” These stimuli, and others that he harbors in his soul and his mind, have given him a very own style, in a formal and conceptual combination that is unlike anyone else’s.
