Antonio Broccoli Porto
My name is Antonio Broccoli Porto and I welcome you to art from my beloved home of 16 years, Puerto Rico, and to my virtual gallery! Through my art, photography and music on this site, I hope to convey to you my love for this Island called, "La Isla del Encanto" (the Isle of Enchantment). I shall paint for you a beautiful picture, introducing you to our wonderful people, culture and this country's wonderful Land and Seascapes.This is a place of beauty and awe. It is a sensual place. It is a vibrant place... but it is also a peaceful refuge that I have called home for over 16 years. Please take your time and enjoy your trip...Bendiciones!
