armando silva (artmando)

"Every brush stroke has a rhythm and every color has its voice.

Armando is an action painter who uses movement and color to tell stories. He moved to Colorado from Mexico when he was just five and quickly became familiar with pop culture, everything from Michael Jackson to the current cartoons, which inspires his art.
