We are a Cuban couple based in Miami, Florida. We decided to combine our independent art careers and form TRATOS. The name is a combination of both our last names (Travieso and Santos). Tratos in spanish means a deal, a bond and a promise to one another to create a reality we wish to see with our paintings. With this established collaboration and unspoken set of rules our goal is to tell an expansive story that is unique to our own experiences.
ABOUT OUR PROCESS
Our work currently is focused primarily on growing, expanding and reconstructing a new entity - TRATOS. We are inspired by each other and allow our personal experiences to narrate our paintings.
