Joaquin Sanchez

My name is Joaquin Sanchez and I'm a new Artist here in Palm Springs, CA. . – I was born in Havana, Cuba, came to the United States in DEC. 1961. I moved to the desert 5 1/2 years ago from Los Angeles via San Francisco. I made Palm Springs my home, my studio is located in my home. I began to paint in 1986, but had to stop painting after a few months because of work. Once I move to the desert in 2005 I decided to take an early retirement because of health issues. I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS 1985 and Cancer on Sept. 2007; I decided to start painting again in 2007. My decision on beginning to paint again was for therapy while I was going through chemo. Painting was a way for me to release my feelings through a brush and inspiration. Ever since I began to paint again, my art has been in a constant state of change. with zero stress. I try to use all mediums and styles in my art. I love to explore all my artistic talents using my creativity that God has given me. Every artist has their own creativity and technique and that what makes us different from each other...I use my own expression and that what make me different...I paint what I feel and see in my heart. Every piece of my artworks reflects and illustrates my life feelings, surroundings, the things and ideas that capture my imagination and my eyes. I love to express the beauty of life and everything around me. I was given a second chance in life after my Cancer diagnose. The chemo was brutal, but the inspiration of my family, my faith and my painting it’s what kept me going, At times there were moments that I didn't think I was going to make it. The work I'm will be showing at DIG’S Art Zone, on March 18, consists of paintings on canvas or canvas board and are done in Acrylic; sometimes I use plaster to give some texture and include collage in corporate in my paintings. Some of my pieces are included in the collections in some Palm Springs, Los Angeles and San Francisco residents. So please check and enjoy my work... Hope to hear from you.
