Carlos Santiago (b. 1974) is a Puerto Rican born artist who enjoys playing with shape, form, and texture. His abstract approach to art never strays too far from his subjects, and his sophisticated color palette is present in all of his artwork. Before moving to Boston, Carlos obtained his BFA in fine art from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. He subsequently worked for ten years as a design professional in the fashion industry in New York City. He continues his artistic education at the SMFA and MassArt, where he currently studies oil painting and lithography.

He has developed his artistic skills with well know artists such as Catherine Kehoe, Caroline Muskat, Elaine Spatz-Rabinowitz and Stanley Belen.
