This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mexican born, Carlos Estrada-Vega is a painter of labor-intensive geometric compositions that are 'handmade objects' in that he carefully applies paint to tiny square pegs of wood, no larger than an inch in diameter, which he then attaches to a steel plate with a small imbedded magnet on the back of the painted peg.  Each peg is painted with pure color, so that the overall effect is one of brilliant, unmixed colors.  Each work is independently hung, but he regards the totality of his pieces as inter-related, meaning part of one large composition.

Estrada-Vega has a studio in Las Cruces, New Mexico, after having lived in Los Angeles for more than 20 years.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University at Bakersfield and contined his studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Biography from Heritage Auctions:
Carlos Estrada-Vega's paintings consist of tiny square pegs of wood, usually no larger than one inch in diameter, which are individually painted with pure pigment and then attached with a small imbedded magnet on the back to a square steel plate. Intuitively arranging these tiny canvases of pigment, he explores subtleties of texture and color, yielding compositions that awaken the deep associative, sensual impact of color.

Born in Chihuahua, Mexico and educated in California, Carlos now lives and works in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
