“Art is a lie that makes us realize truth” is a Pablo Picasso quote that Raúl Colón often invokes because, to him, the statement is true.
Colón is an artist and illustrator interested in the possibilities that the visual image can bring to the minds of others who see it. “No matter if it’s editorial art produced for magazines, posters, murals or art for art’s sake… the visualization of ideas has been with humanity since ancient times,” says Colón. “I’m glad to be able to work in the visual arts, especially when I produce pieces that may inspire young viewers as I once was inspired by children’s picture books.”
Colón was born in New York City, studied art in Puerto Rico and designed puppets and animated films in Florida. An illustrator of over 30 books for children, Colón has received a Golden Kite Award, a Pura Belpré Award and both a gold and silver medal in the Original Art show.
