Canvas Artistry is a collective art space dedicated to artists of all mediums. Different artists’ work is cohesively displayed, contributing to the landscape and the ambiance of our venue. The 9,000 square foot space was redesigned with environmentally friendly practices and offers a platform for artists to enhance their vision and offer viewers a heightened experience of their work. Canvas Artistry is located in the heart of downtown Albuquerque, at 1 Central. The beautiful view from the third floor offers a multi-platform schedule of art, food, coffee, cocktails, and entertainment.
Renowned artist El Moisés is leaving his mark as a contemporary artist that brings the essence of urban culture and barrio flavor to light. His work is recognized on CD covers, books, motorcycles, murals and product labels. The Chicano, American, Native American and Mexican cultures that are reflected in his art pieces influence the foundation of his artwork. Narrating history, culture, visions and street life, he creates the core elements of a chic, vibrant cornucopia. The artist’s distinctive style is bright, intense and exhilarating with countless strokes of brilliant colors flowing in all directions layered on his images, often distorted and surreal, bordered in a bold black outline. Inspired by his roots, El Moisés accents his wood carved frames with a Native American and/or Mexican folk art touch often bringing the artwork outside of the square dimension. El Moisés persistently creates innovative, inimitable work that conveys wit, ethnicity and sincerity. The lively, extraordinary artworks of El Moisés tell stories that are at times humorous, moving and often derived from a current event or a life experience.
El Moisés currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He continuously exhibits and is currently working on new projects throughout the United States, Japan and Italy. Keep in touch with El Moisés and his new undertakings on his website and social media.
