City / State: Chicago, IL

  I explore narrative through painting and expanded painting, transforming the pictorial into the cinematic and scenographic. Through my artwork, which includes paintings, murals, drawings, animations, and film, I explore mythology, visual storytelling, and ethnography as mutating narratives through which we approach reality. My work composes a ludic personal mythology in which I draw from my life in Mexico City and assimilate my cultural heritage through the experience of living in contemporary Chicago.
