Artist Statement and Biography:

My work focuses on my perceptions of present day life and is influenced by my memories growing up in two different worlds: Los Angeles and Mexico. This juxtaposition makes my vision and my work unique. My goal is to continuously record new experiences, focusing on interactions between people and their surroundings, both here in the United States and globally.

I was born in Mexico City in 1976 and moved with my family to the United States in 1979. Growing up in many parts of Los Angeles, I was exposed to many forms of aesthetic expression and always possessed a deep interest in art.

My early art was inspired by the visual storytelling of comic books.  As an adolescent taking part of the b-boy culture, the intricate shapes and designs of graffiti heavily influenced my artwork. Later, the popularity of the skate boarding and snow boarding industries supported illustration jobs in which I designed logos, clothing, and graphics for boards.  In [the mid-1990s], I became a tattoo artist and focused my energies in that field for approximately seven years, in addition to my illustration work.

In 1999, I decided to go to art school and chose a private school, Associates in Art, where I studied under Mark Westermoe, Bill Perkins, Kevin Chen and many others. During this time, I was exposed to artists such as Fechin, Zorn, Sorolla, Cornwell, Brangwin, Leyendecker and Velasquez, as well as Chinese and Russian academic work.  I was also heavily influenced during this time by little known Mexican artist Saturnino Herran. Under this direction, my education consisted of a structured approach to drawing and painting from life, live models, landscapes, and still life.  After a year and a half of study at the school, due to my rapid progress, I was invited to teach there, which I did from 2000 to 2002.  In 2002, I began teaching at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, where I continue to be an instructor today. I also currently teach at the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California, where I have been an instructor since 2004. And the Laguna College of art and design, in Laguna beach CA. 2007 – present. I have also started tattooing again 2012 forward.
