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.

ARTIST STATEMENT

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.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
