Artist says Caribbean influenced work

Costa Rican artist Guillermo Porras says he was lucky to have been born on the Caribbean coast because the colors and the nature there have influenced his art.

Porras, a professor of painting and drawing at the Facultad de Bellas Artes of the Universidad de Costa Rica, has an exposition that opens Thursday at the Museo de Arte Costarricense  in La Sabana.

There are 33 works, including some that are new, said the museum. The exposition is called “Vento Sud” or Southern Wind. His work is mostly in acrylics. The exposition runs until Oct. 11.
