Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina)
Lives and works in Ojai, California
Carlos Grasso studied Music, Graphic Arts and Painting in Buenos Aires, Paris and Los Angeles. His multi-faceted creative career began as a professional musician (flute) in Paris in the late 70s and 80s, eventually evolving into graphic design and fine arts. His painting apprenticeship started with still-life and portraiture in the classical realistic Old Master's style under the guidance of Master Painter David A. Leffel. Later on, his artwork evolved towards pure abstraction, sometimes incorporating figurative elements within the abstraction, creating in these cases an interesting and new visual field of experience with the interpolation of these two worlds.
Grasso's work has been shown and represented by galleries in Santa Fe, Dallas, Carmel, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Napa Valley and Scottsdale.
Carlos' work was featured in several magazines, and is part of private collections throughout the US, Brazil and France. …Read More
