J. "SinXero" Beltran
Contemporary Artist and Bronx native, J. "SinXero" Beltran's artistic style captures the aesthetics of layers and textures, which are created by Mother Nature's natural elements in concert with humanity's need to beautify or bastardize architecture with palettes of color and/or mixed media across urban landscapes. It is SinXero's infusion of automatic compositions, introspection and social development, as well as, conscious and subconscious actions and in-actions while applying his color palettes of choice with emotional intensity that culminate into a rebellious energy entirely released from restraints that breathes life into SinXero's paintings and become a mirror of the human psyche.
Additionally, SinXero's use of materials and techniques to manipulate movement, space and depth is achieved with a wide range of mediums such as the erratic explosion of compressed paint from punctured aerosol spray cans, oil paint, oil sticks and pastels, acrylics and house paints, indian ink, pencils and graphite, polymer dispersion and varnishes, as well as, polyurethane etc ... that are applied with trowels, squeegees, syringes, palette knives, paint and swivel brushes, as well as, brooms and home made extension brushes etc ... A true visionary that experiments with a wide range of styles, SinXero informs, enlightens and educates the public about personal and social issues that are or have taken place in the world and in our community today.
As a child, SinXero loved drawing pictures he saw in Sunday’s newspaper comics and in collections of Britannica Encyclopedias. SinXero’s talents were further developed when he enrolled at Art & Design High School in 1984 where he focused on Art & Photography. In 2000, he freelanced, providing print and digital media solutions to clients as a graphic designer. Later on in 2002, SinXero attended Borough of Manhattan Community College as a part-time night student where he received an award for outstanding leadership skills applied to the growth and success of Acentos Latinos Magazine as its Editor in Chief and earned a degree in Writing and Literature. Seeking to flourish further in his growing passion for art and technology, he matriculated at NYC College of Technology in 2007, where his areas of concentration were under Art, Photography, Advertising & Communication Design and Graphic Design, as well as, Web Design.
Currently, SinXero is an American painter, muralist and designer, as well as, the Founder & Executive Director of TAG Public Arts Project Inc., a 501 (c)3 Not for Profit in NY State. To date, SinXero has produced over 70 paintings and donated contemporary murals to over 25 public art projects in an effort to "Enhance The Visual Landscape of Urban Communities with Art."
SinXero's explosive new work is capturing the attention of both art collectors and collection managers alike. His successful Tribeca art debut in May, 2015 has also received high acclaim from former Sotheby's and Christie's curators. A painting of his, "When In Rome," showcased at the famed Norwood Arts Club in Chelsea, NY August, 2015 through August, 2016.
On October, 2015, J. "SinXero" Beltran embarked on producing a series. In producing these sculpture like paintings with impasto methods, chemical burns and color palettes of choice, SinXero questioned his place mentally, physically and spiritually in an ever changing society, need to live and prevail against adversity in this ongoing body of work through his complex process.
Most recently, on November, 2016, J. "SinXero" Beltran was noticed by Velvenoir, European Art Consultancy & Gallery and secured representation across the globe for select large-scale abstract paintings. In October, 2016, SinXero secured Arches oil papers from France as a sponsor. In June, 2016, he captured the attention of his new oil & acrylic paint sponsor, LUKAS, Artist's Colours since 1862, whom Vincent Van Gogh painted HIS oil masterpieces with, as well as, the renowned Georg Baselitz & in May, 2016, he was featured in The New York Times.
I am proud to having been raised in The Bronx because my old neighborhood's surroundings (my borough's layers, textures & palette of colors) from Prospect & 182nd (Near The Bronx Zoo) to E. 159th St. & St. Ann's (Near The Old Forte Apache Courthouse in The South Bronx) & then to Monroe Projects on Story & Taylor Avenues all influence my wide range of styles & techniques. Memories of economic collapse (The Burning Bronx) that looked like a war zone still manifest in my Contemporary Art today. Picasso had Guernica, I have The Bronx.

Michael DesRosiers Quote:
“Sinxero's particular process often creates violent scarified surfaces…yet in a tremendous gesture of painterly optimism, he infuses them with a healing coat of spectrally complex color…I always find spiritual renewal in that particular juxtaposition!”
