‘New Icons’: Carlo Miranda + Catrina Holdampf
317 E Grand Ave Escondido, CA 92025
Born in Clark Air Base in the Philippines, Carlo Miranda grew up moving from military base to military base along the Pacific Ocean in locations such as Japan, California, and the Philippines. His exposure to different cultures has influenced his art through his perspective of the world. As a child, his passion for art was obvious but due to a motor vehicle accident at the age of 18, his passion for helping others steered him away from the arts. After a decade without a single painting, he has returned to pursue his career in arts. Carlo Miranda specializes in oil paintings, primarily portraiture. Music being a major influence in his life, he has painted several musical artists but is not bound to that subject alone.
Born in Fresno, California, Catrina started off drawing, painting, and sculpting some early controversial pieces completely self taught. Motivated by her love of music and film, Catrina saturates her artwork with faces she looks up to. In addition to creating portrait fine art and sculpting, she also expresses herself through fashion and modeling. Catrina’s latest work includes large murals, life size features, and embellished canvas and paper originals.
