"The Master and the High Heels" by Adrian Socorro is an expressionist work of art made of oil, acrylic, and charcoal on canvas. In an intimate gathering of artists and an outrageous color palette, Socorro captures theater and the comradery that comes from mutual shared adrenaline that is the thrill of performance. Elegant, balanced, and sincere this painting represents the love between performers and the raw emotion that is unseen on the back stages. 

"Do you like to hear the song of the birds? Most people say yes, but do you understand the birds when they sing? That is the essence of my art" says Adrian Socorro on his interview. "Many times I paint things that do not make sense. I don't want to say absolutely anything, I just think in pictures, and I create things that do not exists. I feel free of chains, free enough to send whatever message I want on my art". 

Adrian Socorro can be described as an unconventional painter. He himself states that he will paint with whatever is given that will create color on a paper. Carving himself a style with the materials he is given, Adrian Socorro does not adhere to the social norms of traditional Cuban Art. Not interested in painting the landscapes, the traditional roots, or the beaches of his country, Socorro is more interested in clawing an authentic view of Cuban art that goes beyond what is traditionally depicted in media and art fairs.
