About the Exhibition 
The ArtsPark at Young Circle Gallery is set to open a unique exhibition titled Synapse featuring artist Jose Martinez Vanegas. Synapse opens January 23 and will be on display until March 17, 2017. An artist’s reception will be held on Saturday, February 18th from 6:00 to 10:00 pm in the Gallery. All are welcome to attend, admission is free.

Synapse is inspired by the mythology and architecture influence of other times. By using a theme as old as mythology for inspiration, and adding his special touches, Martinez Vanegas achieves an updated, new vision. He quotes celebrated composer Giuseppe Verdi: "Tornate all'antico e sarà un progresso," which means "Let us turn to the past; that will be progress.” 

The artist’s fine and delicate drawings and paintings feature great artistic detail and contemporary beauty. The technique of his art is mainly color pencil on paperboard and acrylic on canvas. Martinez Vanegas seeks to have those who  view his art  “feel inspirational impulses” while admiring the secret meaning and story transmitted through his  works.

About the Exhibition
Cuban-born artist living in Hollywood, FL where he has organized an Art Meetup group www.meetup.com/hollywood-fl-art . At a very early age, I became very interested in drawing and I have never stopped since his passion for drawing gave me the foundation for becoming the artist I am todayI have no formal art training and I did not teach myself through books; rather by experimenting, a lot of messing up, by watching other artists and asking questions I was able to develop abilities I now use in my creative process. I strongly believe in doing all of my work freehand and reject the use projectors, grids or any other kind of tracing methods
 I have experimented with many different mediums including; pencil, watercolor, acrylic and oil to clay, glass and tile mosaic and jewelry. However for the most part, I have concentrated on painting; but even in this medium, I enjoy diversity. I can be working on abstracts, realism, surrealism and portraiture at any given time . 
 I am blessed to be able to dedicate my life to that which I was born to do and it is a privilege to teach others. As a teacher, it is my goal to help students develop and improve their abilities and to see that which has become second nature to me
