I can’t wait til I can get my work into real galleries so a larger audience can share a connection with the work. Conflicting concepts of human emotion is something I use to create a tension with some of my newer work. For instance, love and heartbreak, happiness and sadness, ugliness and beauty, danger and excitement, realism and abstraction, flat and volumetric, action and consequence. Everything and everyone around me inspires. Salvador Dali, Klimt, Picasso, Chloe Early, Conor Harrington, and Jean-Michel Basquiat to name a few artists.

‘bike art’

Humankind’s fascination with the rolling wheel finds it’s highest expression in the humble bicycle.  The simplicity of it’s form, the utilitarianism of it’s design, the universality of it’s myriad manifestations and the joy of its joining the human with the machine makes this art form truly worthy of celebration.

Aide Treviño

Self taught Artist
Aide Treviño born in the city of Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico 1954.
Aide has been creating art since she was a small child. Movement has been an unrelenting theme in all of her work as it has throughout her life. Aide embraced- that everything is possible in life if you are open to experiencing it, and it suggested movement toward something, which implied growth and expansion.
Aide has developed a modern fine art style that embodies her personality. The response to her contemporary, abstract, and often impressionistic original oil paintings has been as positive as to the artist painting them. “I will never give up my love and passion I have for fine art and being an abstract artist”. She currently resides in San Antonio, Texas and lives as she paints: with gusto and aliveness- and it is the continual wonderment about the world that gives her inspiration. It is a reflection of Aide’s incredible excitement about being alive.
