VICTOR M. TREJO INVITES SPECTATORS OF HIS BERKELEY COLLEGE
EXHIBIT TO SEE ART AS HE SEES IT

 

Berkeley College is presenting the artwork of Victor M. Trejo at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City.  The exhibit is on display through February 28—Mondays through Fridays—from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.       

Mr. Trejo is a quirky, interesting, self-taught artist who grew up on a Mexican ranch, finding an interest in art early on.  “I would watch the chickens, parrots, frogs, monkeys and birds, and see them as miracles of poetic creation,” he said.  “And then I’d start to paint.”

When he begins a project, Mr. Trejo attempts to attract the attention of the spectators and give them the experience of creation through a game of lines in movement, almost as a hallucination.  “I invite them to see art as I see it,” he said.

Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn Galleries,  said that Mr. Trejo has exhibited his work many times as part of the World Fine Art Group, including at Berkeley College campuses.  “I love his work,” said Mr. Keiber.  “It is abstract and it is brilliant.  I hope many people will come to see Victor’s artistry.”

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