I am a minimalist artist, passionate about architecture, urbanism and everything related to design. Geometry is a concept always present in my work, likewise as a Mexican artist I take aesthetic elements from indigenous Mexican crafts, which surprisingly contain elements of minimalism. The color palette that I use in my artwork is also taken from indigenous art, which in most cases, I use the natural pigments from these communities and apply them to my pieces. On the other hand, I try to understand the color trends used globally in textile, furniture, automotive and interior design and I personalize my work in each of my series because ultimately my work has a deep decorative vocation; but despite this, the process of creating my series can take up to four years as it happens with the current Kaleidoscope series, of which I started the research project four years ago, and it has taken me a year and a half to execute. In essence, my work is the result of deep research because it satisfies my need to deepen each project academically, but in practical terms I am more interested in the viewer appreciating my work for its appearance and aesthetics, than trying to understand and explain it academically.
