I was commission to create a public art panel in 2010 and created a piece where I was experimenting with lines, colors, and textures. From that panel I created a series of paintings on canvas exploring different colors.
I was born on January 9, 1965 in New Orleans, of Venezuelan parents. Sixteen months after my birth my family moved back to Venezuela. I was raised in the cities of Maracaibo and Cabimas. These years were formative years and shaped me and influenced me artistically. As a child, I always demonstrated the ability to draw, model, and paint. In 1983 after graduating from High School in Venezuela I moved to the United States, specifically to Houston to start my college education. At North Harris College (now Lone Star College) a counselor suggested I take art classes to improve my English. My English improved and I loved my art classes so much that I realized art was my calling. I decided to get a Bachelor of Fine Arts and in 1988 I transferred to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. In December of 1990 I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art. In 1997 I moved to Virginia and I started my graduate work at Radford University. In May of 2000 I received a Master of Fine Arts from that same institution. Since the year 2000 I have been concentrating mainly on painting. In 2001 I moved to Lubbock, TX and started teaching part time a Texas Tech University. There I ran a home studio and dedicated a lot more time to painting. I moved to Athens, Georgia in 2006. In Athens I have been able to manage a studio at home and outside the home as well, where I make large format paintings. I have also been able to teach art in Georgia at the University of Georgia as well as Georgia College and State University. I am currently a full time Art Lecturer at the University of North Georgia and also continue to exhibit my work nationally. My name is Stanley Bermudez. I am a Vango artist.
