Artist Statement


Irv Arocho, a local artist from New Haven County, works at an aircraft coatings company in Milford, CT where he is employed as a paint maker/color matcher. In the process of making paint, Irv aka Irvaro, has been creating industrial/abstract art from leftover tints that make up the finished paints of his job. The initial pieces of art originated on plastic and soon evolved onto canvas, in 2015. What started out as accidental unintended splashes of color soon became intentionally placed layers of stylized flourishes invoking action and emotion. As with all art forms, styles change and evolve and so has Irvaro’s painting style and techniques as he continues to create new pieces at work while fulfilling his duties as color matcher and paint maker. His previous exhibitions displaying his artworks have been in local art galleries and libraries.         


For many more displays of Irvaro’s art and abstract images captured by Irv at work, check out his page on Instagram @ Irvaro.
