Artist Leonardo Hidalgo's 9/11 Exhibition

“I think it will be a very special moment to be together that night with the firefighters, our true heroes, and honor them while remembering a moment in history that changed the world forever,” said Hidalgo. “I hope that with my art I can make people feel and believe in liberty and justice, and spread some heroic virtues in the consciousness of society.”
Ecuadorian by birth, Hidalgo has made the United States his home since 1990 and embraces, breathes and lives painting as a career ever since. Hidalgo has attracted international acclaim and is collected worldwide for his fine art paintings and memorable portraits of famous faces. His work is widely recognized for its vibrant color and melds photography, computer graphics, pastels, paint and fabric to create a wide variety of individual art pieces.
He has been commissioned by corporate, public and private entities, including Hillary Clinton, Janine Howard, Enrique Iglesias, Dan Marino, The Convention Center of Guayaquil, The Jade Miami of Fortune International, The US Open Polo, and has been the official artist of the Supercar Experience for the past four years.
Hidalgo is widely recognized for his ability to capture the personality and inner essence of his subjects. He enjoys painting portraits of woman, men and children as he feels it’s important to give every individual a legacy, a theme that is also realized in his special 9/11 exhibition.
