About Jose Acosta

Acosta creates lively paintings infused with dynamic forms, vibrant bright colors, swirling figures, and vivacious energy.  His spectacular Van Goghesque textures consistently electrify global audiences.  In fact, his unique animated surfaces are universally acclaimed to be among the most exhilarating and alluring surface-treatments available in 21st Century painting.   Born in San Jose, Cuba, he came to the United States with his family at the tender young age of three.  His paintings and art generally depict or suggest his cultural history, as well as examining his general surroundings and daily experiences.   Yet, his powerful, emotive, as well as playful Neo-neoexpressionistic style forcefully communicates authentic passion, which bursts from his immense and loving heart --- as the mainspring of both his artistic and everyday life.
