Ronald Trinidad, known as ‘Tony’ liked to draw from since he was a little boy. His first drawings were of cartoon figures. This is how he started to watch other figures on TV and in books and started to draw them. The next step he took was to try and draw people. Since he had a little bit of trouble with colors, he decided to take a short course to learn how to mix colors. After this he knew how to paint and started painted faces of people with acrylic paint. And that is where he is now, as long as he is able to paint he will continue to do it. Themes that attract Tony the most to paint is our nature and our culture. Tony would like to thank God for giving him this talent.
Tourism Corporation Bonaire says they invite everyone to come visit the art gallery located at Kaya Grandi # 2 to admire the gallery of Mr. Ronald (Tony) Trinidad and also to buy his artwork.
