Why is focusing its efforts on the female nuude?

Because I think the female nuude is one of the most beautiful things that exist and to some part of my work is a tribute to women. The female body provides an infinite range of expression and sensuality in which I have concentrated my work. Is a constant and exciting to find perfection in color, shape and awaken emotions in the viewer with the minimum of elements in my compositions. i hope you like these realistic paintings

What is the situation of realistic painting in Mexico?

Realistic painting in Mexico think is tilted largely toward the subject of the figurative. There is a strong tendency for magical realism. Sometimes I have to think it is a movement that was born in Mexico. In fact, I could not give an overall assessment of what is happening in Mexico right now and I’m not a painter very involved in the middle. Rather spend most of my time in my studio painting and not usually go much exposure.

The model seems to be the same Can we know who is the muse?

There are three girls that I have served as models lately: Vanessa Munguia, Jessica Munguia and Olga Kabada . , never looks at the viewer, seems shy … not necessarily shy, rather the model does not know that we are there, watching at the time of privacy. It is a moment where the audience is silent so as not to interrupt the scene.

What importance does work in large dimensions?

Lot, I think my pieces achieve more impact when the figure has a ladder or even more. Apart from that the size allows me to work better the details, I feel more freedom when painting.

If anything could criticize his work is that it seems that the issue is a repeat offender, what other theme appeals to you?

At the moment I have no interest on other issues. I feel I still have much experience is something that is a bit complicated to explain. You never know when it’s time to change, I think you can not predict, it just happens. So maybe one day without realizing it, switch and start playing with other issues, and finally this is a game that we enjoy.

What other variant sees its paint may have in the future?

Is a difficult question, maybe experiment with other textures, backgrounds, contexts, types of lighting in the scene. But what I think I will retain is the subject of the figure.

What about the various manifestations of contemporary art?

I believe that contemporary art has taken many strange ways. Some of these events meet certain aesthetic rules are what I like and especially what are some others that do not quite understand them. However, I believe that they are all valid, since they are a constant search for the man to create and express. I think everyone is free to express their ideas in the media that best suits your needs. Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in 1977, where he still resides.
