My name Carlos J Rincón Cabarcas. I was born in Barranquilla Colombia. I remember since 5 years in age I painted with colored pencils. When I was 10 years old an uncle with the family took me for a ride on the ferry that crossed from Barranquilla to the other side of the Magdalena River when we passed a cargo ship. At anchor and from there I decided to be a sailor. When I finished high school I enrolled in Fine Arts but my vocation to the sea was more powerful. I had a large clientele to paint maps. Billboards and drawings for tasks of the neighborhood residents. I am totally empirical as I have never studied an art treatise. When I did not have a job I painted oil paintings. I paint because it’s my love.
