Hello, I am Carlos Spartacus.
I am a Colombian-born, Miami-raised member of the LGBTQ community, and I have a passion for art, design, and creativity. My art explores themes of impermanence, sensuality, desire, consciousness, and the experience of being a human living the LGBTQ experience.
Why Spartacus? I was given the name years ago when I used to have a rebellious blonde mohawk; everyone knew me as Spartacus. Eventually, I adopted it as my artist name. I find it empowering because of its history as Spartacus was a former gladiator and an accomplished military leader. In its adoption as my artist name, I am a fighter for the arts, for equality, and for helping people recognize their own divinity.
Graduating with a dual degree in Painting + Art History (BFA) and Graphic Design (BA) from Florida International University, I have exhibited in prestigious locations, such as The Frost Art Museum, Bakehouse Art Complex, and The Little Haiti Cultural Center. In 2016, I had my first solo show "Carlos Spartacus: Earthbound Musings" at Miami Beach Urban Studios.
