Picardo’s work possesses a distinct aesthetic of Caribbean cultures. Currently based in Grand Rapids, Michigan (USA), He is evolving in the direction of contemporary techniques and forms while retaining the vibrant palette and diverse context that is uniquely Caribbean. Through the use of color Picardo entrances viewers, drawing them into a world of music and dance. More abstract pieces are mesmerizing in both color and simplicity. Meditating upon them brings the viewer a sense of peace. In all of his work there is a sense of the mystical, how it exists within our daily lives and connects us with the universe. Picardo’s paintings serve as a reminder of all that humanity is capable of being, inspiring viewers to strive toward a better self and better world. Picardo is a multi-dimensional artist, combining painting, mixed media, music, and dance into a blend that serves his community, builds bridges, and preserves Dominican island and diasporic cultures.
