Information provided by the Artist: Born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, in 1951, Henry Parada's artistic journey ignited through childhood museum visits with his father. Despite his deep-rooted passion, Henry initially pursued a career in Chemistry, aligning with the scientific opportunities of his time. A turning point arrived when Henry joined IVIC (Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas). Here, artists seamlessly integrated their creations into the institute's gardens, blending art and science. In 2002, political changes led Henry to the USA, where he wholeheartedly embraced painting in 2005. Over time, he immersed himself in art education and material experimentation, particularly in geometry. His art challenges perception with dynamic optical illusions that evolve with each view. Henry's work harmonizes meticulous precision with boundless creativity, often exploring geometric patterns and optical illusions. Today, residing in West Sacramento, California, he continues to craft meticulous, captivating artworks.
