Born within the Dominican Republic, artist Pedro Troncoso beloved artwork as a child. Although he ended up learning aviation for 2 years for what he describes as “some stereotypical motive,” he felt that his “honesty, instinct, and spontaneity from childhood” was deteriorating. He stop aviation and moved to the USA, and since then his work have typically referenced this complicated time in his life, questioning cultural roles, stereotypes, and identification uncertainties. 

At present primarily based in New York, Troncoso is impressed by relics of his childhood, like cartoons, music, and toys. He paints self-portraits or imagined alter-egos, distorting and exaggerating the figures to construct ironic and contradictory narratives representing his discomfort and pleasure as an grownup and the methods by which identification is distorted and threatened by social requirements as we age. “I discover a fantasy world—no matter stays of my real self whereas I ‘develop up’ and adapt to society,” he explains. “A lot of the occasions incorporating the one toy remaining in maturity: creativeness.”
