Walfrido’s style can be described as “Romantic Luminism” in which the subject he portrays go beyond just imitating a photograph but instead add a sense of timeless perfection to nature. Each painting starts out as a loose impressionistic idea. As the layers of paint are added the details come out. By the time the highlights are done the painting glows with light reminiscent of the Old Masters. From up close you can see the rhythm of his brush strokes but when you take a step back the eye blends them all into a harmonious tapestry of light, color and texture. Using photographs, videos and painting on site gives Walfrido endless subjects to paint but it is his imagination that unlocks the key to his style. Each painting plays upon the quality of light whether it is a romantic moonlight, a brilliant sunset, the sea caves of Kauai or the awe-inspiring glow of his signature “Lavascapes“. Its as if each canvas is alive with the brilliant light of nature coming from within.
Walfrido is best known for being a ground breaking leader in seascape art. Besides his traditional seascapes his trailblazing series includes his Koa wood collection, simple seas, fire and fantasy, Disney collaborations and Princess Cruise lines edition.
