Amongst his international solo exhibitions, Victor exhibited his works in Florence and Lago Maggiore, Italy. His art pieces are found worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art in Santo Domingo. His latest participation in a collective show was the Art in Mind show at the Bricklane Gallery in London. Next December the artist will exhibit at the Biennale of Contemporary art of Florence.
I strive to create works which do not only speak aesthetics but which have a more profound meaning at least for me. My canvases are usually prepared with mixed media taken directly from spots or stuff which inspire me.
