Carlos Santiago (b. 1974) is a Puerto Rican born artist who enjoys playing with shape, form, and texture. His abstract approach to art never strays too far from his subjects, and his sophisticated color palette is present in all of his artwork. Carlos obtained his BFA in fine art from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. He subsequently worked for ten years as a design professional in the fashion industry in New York City. He continued his artistic education at the SMFA and MassArt, where he studied oil painting and lithography.
