Biography

Painter and set designer. Camacho attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Beginning in the seventies he exhibited, both individually and in group shows, in Puerto Rico and the United States, and he took part in competitions in the U.S. and Europe, receiving several prizes and honorable mentions through the years. In the seventies, he, Luis Hernández Cruz, Antonio Navia, and Lope Max Díaz became the founding members of the Frente Group, which, despite its short life, published a newspaper of the same name as well as a portfolio of prints. Camacho’s work is characterized by his preference for the “hard edge” style and by its geometry. As Camacho himself said, art should reflect the surrounding reality, and that reality includes “technology, with its suggestive forms of the future”; almost all his work reflects this ideology.
Paul Camacho lived for a time in Easton, CT.
