“The tools I work with are usually oil and acrylic on canvas. I share the same interest in painting and graphics. I enjoy using color without measure, with a visceral notion rather than from the intellect. For me limitations in life wound us, so my work is an attempt to show my genuine and personal passion in Mexican art. My visual narrative is based on the process itself and the random error. I am convinced that by breaking again and again with the result is how you get to the essence of the work. My goal as an artist is to communicate my being, my thoughts, and my mistakes visually. Bring the blog to the public, be seen, display with the goal of creating a personal bond with the viewer. Spiritual and emotional deprivation of all is rewarded in art.”
