Carlos Primo is a lifelong self-taught artist based in Carlsbad, California.  Born and raised in Santa Monica, CA  Carlos has been working on a series of seascapes which showcase waves as the central theme in his paintings. As a lifelong, self-motivated artist, Carlos has developed a realist style of painting.


Carlos worked from his studio/gallery at The Foundry Artist Studios in Carlsbad Village from 2013-2021 where he created and sold his paintings.  He has found a way to blend two of his obsessions which are bodysufing and art.  Carlos currently works from his home studio in Carlsbad, CA.  


While at the Foundry Studios, Carlos and other artists contributed their time and talent in both 2018 and 2019 to "The Hands of Peace" mural project in which Israeli, Palestinian, and American youth express their vision of peace and understanding by creating colorful murals through collaboration with other artist's.


Carlos has donated his works to a local K-6 school by painting a mural in their library, depicting a range of characters from popular children's books.

A second project at the school, and most ambitious mural project, named "Doors to Education" in which sixteen classroom doors were painted that show important moments in U.S. History, Science, and Literature that the students will study.  These projects proved to be his most memorable to date.
