The principal ingredient in abstract works is passion, and that is what musician-artist Christian Porras Piedra brings to the canvas.

The artist, who also is known as C Po Pie, inaugurates a show Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery, located 5 kilometers west of the Daniel Oduber Airport in Liberia.

The artist was born in San José but is considered one of the rising generation of Guanacaste artists. His show is titled, simply, “Abstraccionísimo.”

He is the son of a lawyer and a mother who is a sculptor. She helped in his training with oils and watercolors, the gallery said. His father added the love of music.

His current technique is characterized to be less academic and more passionate.

“Developing his own techniques and flair, Porras exhibited his work both within and outside of his native Costa Rica, in places where his pictorial work creates the buzz and interest of spectators,” said the gallery.
