Gabriel Vicéns is a musician and painter from Guaynabo, Puerto Rico based in New York City. He’s currently studying with re-known painter Pat Lipsky at The Art Students League of New York and exhibiting his works around the city. Vicéns is interested in producing art based on improvisation and instinct; creating exciting works that are influenced by many cultural ideas.

"As a Latin American artist coming from an island where we have influences from indigenous people, Africa, Spain and the United States, my art is naturally a cultural blend of ideas, traditions and beliefs. Painting and drawing have always been a part of my life and another way of expressing myself. I practice the art of improvisation in my works, creating figures that are related to each other by space and movement and then carefully choosing colors to create emotional and thoughtful compositions. I really don't know what's going to happen until the end of a painting. For me, it's always a mystery, and that's the way I like it”.
