I’m a Mexican, artist born in July 1st 1986. My sculpture and installation seek to exalt the human condition as way to achieve an interdependent and harmonic society, convinced of the vocation of art as an agent of change. I’m interested in projects that maintain a dialogue with the viewer and invite him to reflect on current social issues and the personal role in the possible solution. Assemblage of opposing materials and the repetition of shapes and volumes has become my construction medium, interested in the esthetic synergies produced by contrast. Topics as the origin and purpose of emotionality and the cultural differences are subjects of study for my artistic production.
The assimilation of cultural differences trough personal experience and introspection is an important part of my creative process I often work with children and young adults developing workshops as a way to unify the community and understand each others trough collaborative artistisc production. Appealing to our common human essence despite our socalled “big” differences.
