He masters a mixed-media of charcoal, acrylic and oil on canvas to create his compositions by building up carefully placed transparencies of color. Posada works in series which address the human form in a dynamic and constant flux.Currently Posada divides his time between USA, Europe and Colombia to study the masters he admires and to exhibit his art work.
