Brandon Maldonado resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico, an environment rich in hispanic arts and culture. His religion-inspired art, full of somber grace and ceremony, speaks for itself.
“The visual language of art has the ability to communicate beyond the confines of spoken language. I believe this quality is the essence of visual arts and is the medium’s greatest strength. Throughout the course of humanity art has been used to inform civilizations, functioning as a powerful propaganda tool with great success. With this in mind I pick up my paintbrushes and attempt to use art as a vehicle for inspiring change.“
