Artist Bio

Carlos’ artistic practice combines film, photography, music and audio to address issues of structural discrimination, violence, poverty, migration, marginalization and human rights. His work has always revolved around what he calls the beautiful struggle: life after death, family stories, human resilience and bridging the spaces between these subjects.

Working from a sociological and social justice perspective, he is inspired by imagery, sound, news events, landscapes and contemporary socio-political issues.

Carlos makes every effort to connect to human beings and generate a feeling of empathy for the people that we usually overlook, including people who are both victims and perpetrators of violence.
