Hello, I am Carlos Spartacus.
Who am I? And why “Spartacus?”
I am an artist and designer living in Miami, Florida. I am a Colombian-born, Miami-raised member of the LGBTQ community, and I have a passion for creativity!
I have a dual degree in Painting + Art History (BFA) and Graphic Design (BA) from Florida International University. I have exhibited in various 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.
Why Spartacus? I was given the name back when I used to go to raves, because I had a blonde mohawk! 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 use as my artist name, I am a fighter for the arts, for equality, and for the evolution of human consciousness.
