Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint, Ink, Paint on Wood.

CHAMANES are a family of reinterpreted pieces of Peyote seeds; and perhaps along with the Peyote Hearts, they are the most representative of the Happy World series.
"Los Chamanes" are the central figures of the Huichol communities, because in addition of having authority, they maintain the living traditions and are spiritual guides of their people, so I thought it important to represent them in this series because the Huichol culture is not understood without the presence of "Los Chamanes" as spiritual guides and means of contact between the community and its gods.

I am inspired by the culture of the Huichol people, an indigenous population located in the center of Mexico, mainly in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit. Among many things, the Huicholes are characterized for the use and consumption of Peyote for religious purposes. Happy World Series, deals with the morphology and architecture of the peyote plant, as well as for its effects. At the same time, I re interpreted the aesthetics of the Huichol art, as the result of the effects of peyote. As in all I do; Geometry is still present in my work. Happy World comprises of Painting on latex, canvas, MDF board and Digital; also various types of sculptures, as well as installations.
