My first contact with printmaking was on the streets of Mexico City where 'Her Soul' is constantly portrayed in handmade posters glued on any surface available. My favorite of these images were the ones created by Ã¬el movimientoÃ®, or the grass roots movement; I loved the bold expressive lines of their relief prints and the aggressiveness that spoke of social injustice. Later I learned about the close relationship between printmaking and social movements around the world, which has helped to shape my own artistic language. I create art to help me understand and assimilate my everyday life tribulations. In my work you will find a broad range of themes: my ludic approach to civilization, images of cultural and political history, and images that echo my own life experiences and culture.
