In the artist’s own words:
Carlo Miranda Born in Clark Air Base in the Philippines, Carlo Miranda grew up moving from military base to military base along the Pacific Ocean in locations such as Japan, California, and the Philippines. His exposure to different cultures has influenced his art through his perspective of the world. As a child, his passion for art was obvious but due to a motor vehicle accident at the age of 18, his passion for helping others steered him away from the arts. After a decade without a single painting, he has returned to pursue his career in arts. Carlo Miranda specializes in oil paintings, primarily portraiture. Music being a major influence in his life, he has painted several musical artists but is not bound to that subject alone.
Carlo and Catrina’s exhibition, along with the Micro Gallery grand opening will run from September 14th through October 5th, 2019. The opening reception with Carlo & Catrina, live music, ArtHatch open studios, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine will be on Saturday, September 14th from 6 -10pm. The Grand Opening will be held as a 2nd Saturday event.

About Distinction Gallery / Art Hatch:
Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, cutting edge artwork. Distinction has hosted over 120 exhibitions since its inception featuring emerging, mid-career and veteran professional artists. Distinction’s artwork is available for purchase online to clients around the world, and most of our artists are available for commissions.
