BIO / STATEMENT
Jose likes to express himself through art because it allows him to express his ideas and beliefs to others. Jose`s mother always encouraged him to develop his talents and pursue his dreams. Jose wants those viewing his art to know that he is first a philosopher, second an artist and third a humanist. Expressing himself through art has help him develop the ability to love others unconditionally. Jose worked 33 years in a residential building in the area of Gramercy Park, and was a shop steward for 7 years before retirement last year, representing 15 buildings for the 32BJ SEIU.
