Musica, Acosta creates, using his Dutch/Russian imaginative admixture of Van Gogh-Chagall, an image generating a terpsichorean jaleo reminiscent of several imaginative works within Joan Miro's Dutch Interiors Series with their vibrant horror vacui activating the entire surface with dancing shapes, floating forms, and brightly colored abstract figural elements caught in uproarious-revelry, illustrating the festive elation that hip-shaking Salsa Music generates. This signifies, for Acosta, a major aesthetic influence upon his visual art. Hence, at full volume, he affirms that, The energy in Caribbean music lifts my spirit and brings me great joy. It is crucial to understanding my art that viewers grasp that the things that I enjoy most about my Hispanic Heritage are Family, Friends, Music, as well as all the Arts and Cuban Food.
