Abisay Puentes is a multimedia, visual artist and a composer, whose artistic expression flows from visual to aural in a diverse aesthetic performance. This versatile artist consistently and expertly draws the spectator into an engaged experience with the visual arts and music that blurs the boundaries between the senses of sight and hearing. For Puentes, artistic expression is not bound by the traditional categorical divisions that separate painting from music. Puentes performs his art in a creative continuum found in his paintings, prints, drawings, watercolors, videos, poetry, prose and musical compositions, which generate immersive environments. As Puentes challenges the traditional separation of aural and visual categories of art, in his complex works, sight and sound merge into one perceptual experience.
