About The Artwork

Xicolti is the Nahuatl (Aztec language) word for “bumblebee”. Xicolti is part of a triptych printed in blue, black and red. It is inspired in the human spirit, introspection and my cultural heritage. The limited edition consists on five etchings hand-painted with gouache and golden Japanese watercolor, printed on a Hahnemühle sheet of paper. The etching printing technique consists of a drawing made on a copper plate which is then inked and hand-printed on a larger sheet of paper. Each print is an original and each one of them will be unique from the other since they are all hand-printed. Edition, title and artist signature are handwritten by the artist under the printed image. The whole artwork is the image of the copper plate on the larger paper sheet. That is the format that I intend to use as a whole. NOTE (see also second picture): Paper size (WxH): 15.3x11 inches (39x28 cm) Copper plate (image) size (WxH): 5.9x 5.9 inches (15x15 cm)

As a Mexican artist, my art is rooted in Latin American symbolism, mythology, literature and cultural history. The images that appear in my prints, drawings and paintings are interpretations of dreams about love, nature and the sacred connections between animals and human beings. They are representations of my vision and heritage as well as my deep interest in Tibetan art. Like an enlightened moment, I have realized the dualistic nature of art, its diversity and universality in relation to the state of mind I have created when I left Mexico. Since moving to New York City in 2010, Amsterdam and finally having settled in Paris. I have continued to expand my working processes and mediums to achieve the best result by exploring their unlimited possibilities. I consider my art to be open ended. It is up to the viewer to interpret it as they like, to contemplate what they see and feel instead of my interpretation of what the work is about.
