The deceptively simple yet dense paintings and drawings are reminiscent of influential artists such as Keith Haring, MC Escher, and Remedios Varo.
His communal collaborations between spectator and artist began in Denver with his Make Alleys Great Again project, in which the artist appropriated the slogan of a politically divisive U.S. politician to instead bring unity and joy to communities.
In 2021, he produced a live mural entitled The Joy of Being Together in partnership with Nextdoor and the New York Stock Exchange. The artist's joyful, optimistic, and community-oriented work continues to gain interest on a national level. Charlo made his debut as a keynote speaker at TEDxMileHigh in August of 2022 allowing him to tell his story to a much wider audience. Since then, the artist has continued to make his mark in the world through his community driven projects.
The Gratitude Of The Flowers, Charlo’s first solo exhibition allowed him to showcase his ability to do more than just murals. Charlo's multifaceted work has made his work a staple not only in the community but within the homes of his collectors.
