Tió, a native of theDominican Republic, began his studies
of painting with the Dominican artist Elias Delgado as well
as the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes.
A move to New York in 1994 led him to Izquierdo Studio Ltd.
for film and Television Production, window displays, opera
and theater, which had a great influence on his artwork. His
paintings show a dramatic and complex portraiture, irresistibly
sensual and visionary, which exploits scale and luminosity
without eschewing the personal and the poetical; works that
entices the eye and rewards the mind. He has done five solo
shows, the latest, ”Memories and Dreams” at the
Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn NY. Group
shows in New York, include: “Forms of Divinity” Williamsburg
Art & Historical center, “New works by Artgroup”,SK417
Fine Arts gallery, New York. “Art Expo New York”Jacob
Javits Center, New York. and “fragments of Illusions”
(five Dominican artist), Peter Madero Gallery New York.
