ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a draughtsman. My work is an organic process where I let the act of drawing dictate my compositions combining mythical and historical sources with contemporary provocations. My control of the visual tale comes from the source material I use in this process. Centerfolds, cartoon creatures, commercial facades and strange street characters populate my work. All with the purpose of conveying a personal, baroque narrative that resembles abstract, urban, chaotic sediment reminiscent of Tijuana, the city I come from.
