Oscar Correa

Born in Mendoza, Argentina

Lives & works in Apex, North Carolina

 

At a very young age in Mendoza Argentina I watched and learned from my father

Carlos Correa, who I consider a Renaissance man. He was a self taught master of all forms of art he attempted. He created unbelievable works of art whether the medium was architecture, photography, painting, drawing, leatherwork, fabric designs, metalworking, mechanics, or writing. His eye and attention to detail was unparalleled. I watched the master. 

 

I was 15 years old when, my mother, my two older brothers and I moved from Mendoza to Sarasota Florida where my father had moved a year earlier and established our new home. I can't explain the change and wonder in this new world for me. We all had jobs and worked to support our family. I worked primarily in restaurants for many years, but continued my art on the side when I could.

 

Today, my passion for art has been reignited! Every day I get to wake up and create beauty with my wife Paula.  We work together at Sculpture Studios. I am a ceramist by day, and create my art at home in the evening. Everyday of my life is full of creating, beauty, and the artistic process.

 

Mostly my work consists of commisioned art pieces. Graphite, oils, acrylics, or pastels are my mediums of choice. My plan is to continue pursuing all forms of artistry, and make my two sons Logan & Kyan proud of their dad.

 

My beautiful family is my greatest masterpiece!
