About the Instructor
Maurice Casas’ art is a result of several years of experimentation and a search for identity. The fusion of these two disciplines and his sensitivity have given him a new vision for color and design. His work creates an environment of invented realms and is juxtaposed between past and present. He uses semi-abstract and figurative mark-making to create tension between reality and fanciful. Maurice has developed a unique and colorful language with its own vocabulary using Pre-Columbian Art, Iconography, and Architecture elements. Originally from Colombia in South America, Maurice has attended Colegio Antonio Narino and New York City Technical College. He has lived in the United States for 35 years where he has worked as a Visual Artist and Architectural Designer.
