“I love using Trekell brand brushes and panels because of the quality, affordability and ease of purchase via (their) website. But what sets them apart from the competition is the human presence in communication with the brand. Whether it be troubleshooting or answering questions about brush difference(s), Trekell responds with a timely and educated answer. This brand establishes a real connection with the artists they provide service to."
As a young child, Victor Roman (aka Viralboa) would receive art pieces through the mail from his uncle. Each drawing was in pen but the surface would vary. Victor later discovered that his uncle was sending these to him from San Quentin.
The drawings helped to ground his uncle and keep him connected to life outside of prison throughout his long years of confinement. It was the beautiful craftsmanship and extreme detail, along with the story that were told with these pieces that inspired Victor’s love of art, which you can see echoed in the art he produces today.
Victor Roman’s passion for expressing himself through art motivates him to sketch and paint whenever he can. On most days, you will find him painting in his studio well into the night.
The subjects that he paints evoke complex emotions in the viewer, who are challenged to consider their feelings and develop their own interpretation of his art.
Music is also a large part of Victor’s life. Throughout the day he listens to a variety of music but finds himself drawn to artists such as Portishead, A Perfect Circle and Leonard Cohen in his personal time.
However, Victor’s art is influenced by a different kind of music. While he is working, Victor listens to music from areas of the world that he is unfamiliar with. The culturally indigenous sounds inspire and inform his work.
He researches their area of origin and learns about the traditions and culture of the people who live there. He then produces a piece of work that best interprets the artists and cultures’ story.
