Each canvas in Carlos Esteban Trinidad’s solo painting exhibit, Meliora for the Pursuit of the Better, whispers tales of transformation and introspection. Inspired by his unwavering commitment to growth, Trinidad’s art transcends mere aesthetics, inviting viewers on a journey of self-discovery and renewal.

With a palette as diverse as the human experience itself, Trinidad masterfully weaves symbolism into each stroke, infusing his works with a palpable sense of vitality. From the bold declaration of vibrant hues to the intricate dance of form and composition, his paintings serve as mirrors, reflecting the viewer’s own aspirations for improvement.

Abstract yet deeply evocative, Trinidad’s works on paper beckon the soul to explore realms beyond the tangible. Echoing the pioneering spirits of Kandinsky and Malevich, these pieces eschew conventional representation in favor of capturing the essence of emotion and thought.

Trinidad extends an invitation not merely to observe but to engage, to reflect, and ultimately, to embark upon one’s own odyssey towards a brighter tomorrow.

Meliora for the Pursuit of the Better will formally open to the public on 24 February, at the Altro Mondo Creative Space.
