About Matachos Art
Oscar Reyes nace en Cali, Colombia en 1970. desde temprana edad debido a motivos familiares, cambia frecuentemente de paÃs, teniendo asÃ en su Ã©poca de formaciÃ³n muchas posibilidades de interactuar con diferentes culturas, despertando en Ã©l fascinaciÃ³n por los diferentes tipos de personalidades.
Desde muy joven, dibujaba bosquejos que sÃ³lo dejaba a lÃ¡piz y que ademÃ¡s sÃ³lo mostraban la mitad del ro
stro, siempre haciendo Ã©nfasis en que todos tenemos un lado oculto que hace parte fundamental de lo que somos.
En el 2002, radicado en Miami, sus diseÃ±os encuentran de la mano de Isabel Estrada color, logrando por medio de esta alianza la creaciÃ³n de MATACHOS ART.
Isabel Estrada nacida en Cali, Colombia en 1977, desde muy niÃ±a se caracteriza por su favoritismo al arte, el cual la hace viajar a Mexico en busca de oportunidades y educaciÃ³n. Este paÃs, lleno de color y folklore junto con su cultura natal, le dan la inspiraciÃ³n para llenar de alegrÃa y magia los diseÃ±os de Oscar, creando asÃ una maravillosa fusiÃ³n.
De una manera creativa, alegre, probando diferentes tipos de trazos y texturas, y llegando a una aceptaciÃ³n del producto en el medio se ha ido desarrollando MATACHOS ART.
About Attila Lakatoush
Ravish femme fatales full of passion, power and pride and exuding self-assurance and worldly knowledge
, these are Attilaâ€™s women. Women who know what they want and how to get it, women who control their own destiny. Attila has the ability to capture and dramatize his subjectsâ€™ inner sensuality and vulnerability while leaving no question as to who is in charge.
Based in Miami and New York, Attila Lakatoush is a highly gifted and trained artist. His career began at the early age of eight when he was offered a scholarship to study at the Pratt Institute. After completing his training as a top-notch fashion illustrator at the High School of Art and Design and finally the Fashion Institute of Technology, Attila discovered and refined his own style while traveling the world and working with such visionaries as Claude Montane, Vivienne Westwood, John Richmond, And Cynthia Rowly.
Intense and stylized portraits of powerful and seductive women have always been his trademark. Reminiscent of 40â€™s film icons like Jennifer Jones, Maria Felix, Hedy Lamarr, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Jean Simmons and Eva Gardner. These glamorous women are not the girls next door. Attila paints the mega-diva, strong willed and dramatic ladies who understand what it means to be a woman. They know how to use their wiles how to dress and act well, how to carry themselves with coexisting strength and femininity. Attilaâ€™s clients are todayâ€™s divas. A list that includes philanthropist/socialites Dorythia Green, actress Lucy Liu, actress Debbie Mazar, Super Model Linda Evangelista, Legend Eartha Kitt, Singer Kylie Minogue, International Super Star Joey Arias, Susanne Bartsch, Patricia Fields and Princess Anisha Sabnani.
Attila has also begun to create images that capture the male image in its masculine form, full of raw virile strength and dominant sexual energy.
Attilaâ€™s views on the art are simple yet powerful, classic yet open minded and thoroughly focused on accessibility. He not only does commissioned pieces but has original works and limited edition lithographs on display at his own gallery (Attila Lakatoush Art & Design Studio) in the heart of Miamiâ€™s Art District and via the internet.
