Given both the
volume and caliber of his many works, one may well think they were viewing the creations
of a seasoned veteran painter. However, when Mael Victory began painting at the
age of four few would have guessed that only a year later his works would be hanging
in local galleries. At the age of six Mael's work really began to forge its own
identity when he began working with canvas in his own studio. Now, at the age of
14 this Costa Rican artist's work is drawing attention from galleries and collectors
for its abstract juxtapositions of bright colors, and unique contemporary flavors.
Born to expat
parents in a remote jungle village in Costa Rica, it makes sense that Mael has chosen
environmental issues as the overriding theme of many of his works. With zero formal
art training Mael has developed into an independent, authentic young abstract painter
whose sweeping, untamed brush strokes are just one of many hallmarks unique to his
work. A selection of Mael's work currently adorns the walls of various collectors
homes and art galleries around the globe.
