As an abstract artist, Pagan developed his painting style with watercolors during his study at Fashion Institute of Technology. He fine-tuned his process while finishing his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Purchase College and now uses latex/house paint in his work. “What allures me about this process is the challenge of controlling the uncontrollable.” said Pagan. “As inspiration, I use different color systems. My favorite is the colors of the Orishas.”
His latest project is learning the different percussion styles of bomba y plena from the masters at Los Pleneros de la 21. He also participates in art collaboratives that premise around social justice and its affects on housing for artists.
