"I try to portray people who give you inspiration to be a better person," Pinto said.
Pinto©’s artwork is poignantly aggressive and projects a revolutionary declaration. The scope of his art covers abstract painting, tile work, wood work, stencil spray, the use of non-biodegradable plastic and glass. Most of his media comes from salvaged material and found objects. His use of plastic is unique and pulsates with hidden significance.
Issues such as human and animal rights, environmental preservation, and empowerment of minorities are frequently incorporated into his work. His legacy, as he sees it, is to be known as an artist who demands change to a Green Revolution.
For his show at AAA3A New-York-based Guatemalan artist, Carlos Pinto, Pinto©, will display a series of vibrant mosaic portraits of cultural icons and local heroes; these portraits were created using discarded Metrocards. His artwork comments on issues of social justice and environmental conservation.
