Today we’d like to introduce you to Rosario Psy.
Rosario, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I am originally from La Paz Bolivia, came to Fort Lauderdale to major in graphic design at The Art Institute.
I started painting at an early age, growing up and being part of the Andean culture and scenery filled with traditions, rituals and art helped me open my mind and perspective to see and portray reality in a psychedelic surreal way on canvas, I fell involve with art, with the process and I realized I feel most alive when I make art and when my art speaks to people.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’m a Graphic designer, Mosaicist, and Fine artist.
My Art is a fun mix of psychedelic, surreal, visionary, and dark art.
I’m always looking to mix mysticism, spirituality, and surrealism in an interactive fun way, using bright contrasting colors along with unusual textures that are meant to represent and unify the concept of the piece; These elements combined mainly characterize my work and technique, I typically use acrylic on canvas as my main mediums, but I’m always exploring depending on what the piece calls for.
When making mosaic murals the process is lengthy and very rewarding, it often reminds me to live and how each piece is very important for the whole artwork to come alive, and that every piece is unique just like each one of us, I kind of picture each project as a little world with a lesson.
I think art making and seeing starts different fires in our souls. I believe that everything we see and do matters forever and honoring that responsibility as an artist is very important and humbling.
My core goal is to express and represent the ambiguity between spiritual freedom and the struggle of the flesh and the mind. The will that we all have to be freed of our own perceptions of life and let go and think about the unseen, colorful, and vivid of our thoughts and emotions.
In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
Probably not compromising the essence of your art for mass acceptance.
It’s also challenging to use exposure to pay the bills. LOL.
I do think there is room for everyone, but sometimes it’s hard to deal with the politics of it all.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Currently, some of my mosaic pieces are installed at Bailey Contemporary Arts Center (BaCa) in Pompano Beach as well as a few pieces that are in the making as part of the Mosaic Project for the city of Pompano Beach, where I work with a group of very talented artists.
Fort Lauderdale Art Walk every Month as well.
