These random impressions of his travels are an invitation to each of us to travel inward.
In his paintings Christian Soto builds a philosophy of life.  His abstract paintings faithfully capture the character and intense colors of the Latin culture.   Each painting is filled with energy and an extraordinary physical strength which seem to write a poetic and powerful novel.

La pintura se convierte en un modo de intercambios, de andazas al azar de sus ganas. Una filosofia de vida esta naciendo.Recorriendo la calles de Buenos-Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago de Chile o de San Francisco cada encuentro es una fuente de enriquesimiento, C.S con lienzo y pinceles por companeros immortaliza escenas de multitudes coloreadas, vidas y luces vivas que lo rodean.

Cruce instintivo tanto como initiatico, es la oportunidad pare el de salir a la  busqueda de su familia saciante su necesidad de explorar nuevos horizontes y territoros .

“De ses paysages colorés, Christian Soto a gardé cette exceptionnelle lumière. Dans sa dernière production il nous invite à découvrir un monde nouveau. Ses paysages deviennent vent, sable, feu…
Dans ses toiles, tout se passe comme si l’étonnement de la découverte, surgissait l’émotion intacte, évacuée de tout a priori, débarrassée des barrières. Les thèmes développés pas Christian Soto, qu’ils soient musicaux ou atmosphérique s’inspirent de sensations invisibles et quotidiennes. Sonorités des notes et tonalité de la couleur forment une partition imaginaire invitant chaque regardeur à apprécier la douceur d’une expérience déjà vécue. Souvenir des sensations émotionnelles. Lecture fluide d’une œuvre dont la seule source d’inspiration s’apparente au ressenti.»
