In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month and Berkeley College’s 85th anniversary, the College is presenting the artwork of Mexican artist Victor M. Trejo at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City.  The exhibit is on display from September 1 through October 18, 2016  Mondays through Fridays – from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  

An artist’s reception with live music and Latin food will be held on Thursday, September 8, 2016, at 6:00 pm.     

Mr. Trejo grew up on a Mexican ranch, finding an interest in art early on.  He is self-taught and would paint whatever he saw, like chickens, parrots and birds, seeing them as miracles of poetic creation.  As he continued painting, he was inspired by the artists Wassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian and the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud and Walt Whitman. 

“I believe that my abstract compositions become figurative images that reflect, I hope, my love for nature and a very optimistic view of life,” said Mr. Trejo.

He has exhibited his work at Berkeley College in the past, and has also shown his art in Phoenix, AZ, and Montreal, Canada.     

“Mr. Trejo is such an interesting abstract artist who sees his work as a poetic experience,” said Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Midtown Manhattan Gallery. “It is a treat to have him back again at Berkeley College.”   

For more information about the exhibit, email Mr. Keiber at rjk@BerkeleyCollege.edu or call 212-252-2065.
