I'm a self-taught artist born and raised in a small town in Mexico. My small town is rich with traditions, culture and beauty, the perfect enviroment for me to cultivate a love and appreciation of the arts. Throughout my childhood I had the good fortune to be exposed to colorful cutural events, and those memories are present everytime I paint. I adopted the surrealism style because of it's dream-like illusions.
My work has been displayed in CUNY art student galleries. Herbert H. Lehman College, CUNY In The Heights. My optimun innovation was my solo exhibition in Hostos Community College.
My porfolio consists in of variety of paintings, oil on canvas in different dimentions. My present goal is to participate in community arts festivals.
Thank you so much for your comment on my piece. I find the latin art so inspiring because it is so full of passion. I am trying to save now for a trip to the yucatan . that is where my grandfather was from. I want to paint the people there.
In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.
We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/
For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.
