Raised in Miami since the age of five, Aguilar is a self-taught painter widely recognized amongst the young South Florida contemporary art community. Aguilar’s work communicates sensations of danger, dread and emotional volatility filtered through the psychological wavelengths of the ‘mob mentality’. In a constant state of searching for truth, Aguilar highlights the possibilities of attaining ultimate knowledge: like Faust, enlightenment leads to self-destruction while ignorance remains blissful. His colors and subjects reflect the full scale of human mortality, destined for a glorious demise. Elements of classical mythology are selectively inserted throughout Aguilar’s work, continuously nodding to stylistic modes of German Expressionism.
