30 x 40
Acrylic on Canvas
Louis Komodo believes, when it comes to painting, to fool the human eye is purely technical, but to inspire deep emotions is divine. Caribbean born, Miami raised and currently NYC resident, Komodo’s interest in art started early in his life as a... dare. At 9 years old, his childhood frienddared him to go approach a beautiful girl in class and ask her out. Rather than using words, Komodo decided the best way to charmed her was to paint a watercolor portrait of her -- it worked.
This was the beginning of one of the most important lessons in the world of art for Komodo: An artist can pierce someone's soul through his work of art. He has been painting ever since.
