Carlos Solis was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela. At an early age he showed signs of an active imagination and a developing creative ability. He started painting murals and portraits when he was a teenager. In 1989 he moved to the USA and began working as a freelance Artist/Designer in Atlanta.
Carlos Solis started painting in a surrealist style in the mid-nineties, often drawing on imagery from nature, fantasy, spiritual and conceptual art. "In the infinite world of my imagination, I tried to convey and stimulate the mythical and spiritual elements of visual expression." His work clearly references Salvador Dalí, but he continually finds new fresh imagery in this style.
