Lagos has been painting imagery  for the last thirty-five years of his life. His vibrant works are a reflection of his love for the art movements known as Impressionism and Expressionism.


The art of Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Louvrier and André Derain figure prominently in shaping the aesthetics that influence his creations. 


Born in San Salvador, El Salvador on July 4 1954, Lagos left his native land at twelve years of age. In 1966 his immediate family relocated to the U.S.A. Where he became a citizen at age eighteen and served honorably in the United States Air Force in 1974.

Raised in Washington, D.C. his love of art grew tremendously. While still in high school, a young Lagos would surreptitiously spend school days admiring paintings at The National Gallery of Art, or works of art at The Freer Gallery of The Smithsonian Institution or strolling through the monuments in the nation’s capital. 


The travels, the travails in the course of his lifetime have abetted his conviction that life is art. His desire to share this vision and outlook on art is now, more than ever  an important endeavor in his life. For Lagos, art and time in this world are of the essence in his life.
