FEDERICO TORRES BODÓN

Federico was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, and has only recently moved to Columbus, GA.   

ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:
2003 -2008: Bachelors in Fine Arts
Summa Cum Laude
Fine Arts School  of Puerto Rico in San Juan

1992-1996  Bachelors Studies in Fine Arts
Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.

He has completed a number of workshops and private courses in painting and graphic arts.  He is a
member of the Honors Society of the Fine Arts School of Puerto Rico.

Federico shares his passion for art with his love of music.  Since a very young age he could play the piano
and guitar by ear while drawing all over the walls and floor of the house, he says.  He subsequently took
piano lessons at the Music Conservatory of Puerto Rico.  As with most artists, he held business positions
to pay the bills, and worked to direct his passions for art, music and basketball to make a productive life.   
He joined a rock band for a short time , and feels this is the reason many of his art works have some sort
of “musical movement” in them and are often inspired by music from the greats like Beethoven and the
Beatles, for two extremes.

Federico kept searching for a way of creating harmony with this “weird” way of living, and that’s when he
finally decided to give art another chance after an eight year break.  This time he was willing to take full
advantage of his skills and of his past experiences, while trying to ignore the exhaustion that often resulted
from his job in the banking business and the efforts of his creative side, with little or no time in between.  
He attempts to this day to get closer to that harmony between the arts and his daily life.  Music is still a part
of his creative processes, and his painting has inspired him to create musical compositions and vice-
versa.  He dreams of doing an exhibition in which every painting will have a musical composition along with
it.
