Carter Voras is a self-taught visual artist from the US who works primarily with acrylic paint and other 2D media. What had started as a side hobby in high school quickly became a means of expression and self-reflection. Carter graduated in 2021 with a BA in French Translation and a minor in Studio Arts and Design. In March of 2020, Carter was selected at UW-Milwaukee’s Student Union Art Gallery annual juried show alongside a small selection of fellow artists from the Milwaukee area. This was the first time his work had been recognized and gave him the energy to continue producing exciting work. Through his art he continues to think and to feel and to uncover deeply personal truths.
Carter Voras’ work is expressive by nature. His brushstrokes are deliberately jagged, bold, and quick, and a lot of his work plays with a vibrant palette emphasized by harsh black lines. He has worked with both abstraction and narrative pieces and finds the most exciting work comes out of the attempt to weave the two together. His most recent work involves human figure, capturing expression through facial features and distorted poses.
