TREK6

TREK6

“The cutting edge is a bleeding edge”, is a line that has haunted Oscar “Trek6” Montes all his life. From his first ventures as a young painter in Miami’s blooming street art scene in the late 80’s to his Sound Art experiments in the new millennium, Trek’s work have always displayed a man’s search for understanding in a world of oddities. Varying in medium and aesthetic the one dominant trait that the entire works share is an eye for the human condition at it’s best and worse, colorful and monochrome.
 
Art has been a life long passion and pursuit for Trek, dating back to his art upbringing in the 80’s were he studied under the mentorship of Puerto Rican painters
Andres Bueso and son Andy Bueso were he honed his painting skills and learned what it meant to be an artist. His grandmother owned the first art store in Plaza de Americas (Puerto Rico) and through that work she met many of Puerto Rico’s top artist which she forced Trek to study under on his summers. He would return home to Miami with this knowledge and love of art and carry it with him on the streets of Miami were he was part of one of the city’s most notorious and oldest graffiti crews STV, creating mural all over the city and through out the US and Puerto Rico
