Werc - Aerosol and mixed media

My work comes from two places, border culture because I was born in Cd Juarez and grew up in El Paso Texas; and graffiti, my urban teacher, because the streets were my training ground. My passion for letters has provoked new inspirations in my artist life. Although graff is the most profound element of myself as an artist , it is separate from my art practice, where I am challenged by the contemporary approaches of all mediums in art. Inspirations come from logos, symbolism, architecture, urbanization, the humor and nostalgia in specific immigrant cultures because I see the beauty in their creative micro-economies that develop sustainability and affordability; which lead to creations of participatory and collective art projects with intentions of dissolving all borders and deceptive forms of separation. Hunting, gathering and investigating these themes; I paint, collage, install, sculpt and use video to translate my concepts into experiences . In my paintings, I use the language of globalization and create responses made with the cardboard logos of multinational import/export commodities used today. In the silkscreen works on paper, the art exists installed in public spaces as interventions of the conditionings we have in a culture of marketing, where we are constantly being sold something. The pieces just give without asking for a return and become challenges for the viewer's set beliefs.
