Sanchez will present new, small oil on panel paintings. He grew up in the blue-collar town of North Bergen, New Jersey situated directly across New York City. His upbringing is the origin of the working-class attitude with which Sanchez approaches painting. The works are executed in a style referencing traditional oil painting while using contemporary images. Sanchez is a graduate of the Art Institute of Miami and holds a MFA from the Florida International University. He currently lives and works in Broward County, Florida. Sanchez's work captured the attention of collectors, including Debra and Dennis Scholl and Bill Bilowit and Grela Orihuela, beginning with his series of airplane views in 2005. Since then his repertoire has grown, including subjects close to him, like interiors, a fair, trucks parked in the shade. The way he approaches these subjects continues to be a skillful exploration of painting light.
