- I'M A VISUAL raconteur -
Carlos Vargas was born in Miami, Florida and attended UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte), receiving a BFA. in Art with concentrations in graphic design and digital media in 2018. His body of work ranges from graphic design to experimental video to even digital paintings. Carlos recently presented one of his video pieces (To + Fro) at the annual Digital Graffiti festival in Alys Beach, FL. Carlos' main inspiration comes from stories. Since he was a little kid, Carlos would read fantasy stories and analyze them. This analysis would become the basis of each and every one of his pieces. When not creating work, Carlos is either watching theatre or playing tabletop games with his friends.
