Emanuel Torres (Aguas Buenas, Puerto Rico, 1988) creates abstract paintings of fragmented bodies liberating from the restraints of cultural imperialism.

Rich in color and shape, his rhythmic compositions find influence in Olga Albizu (1924-2005), Rosado del Valle (1922-2008), Carmelo Fontánez (1945) and Julio Suárez (1947), among others. Torres pulls from Puerto Rican masters, to push through colonial systems resulting in stylistic revolutions that move from fervent marks, to graceful arcs.

Torres graduated from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras with a BA in theatre and philosophy and continued his studies in video art, installation and performance at the University of Puerto Rico, Cayey. He is the recipient of the 2018 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and has participated in group and individual exhibitions across Puerto Rico, Europe, Japan, and the United States.
