Mexican, b. 1976, playing from Guadalajara, Jalisco, MX

I am interested in searching an honest way to discover who I am. Creating is for me a process of transformation and mystery. I like to experience and to explore different means, such as painting, engraving, literature, and recently, silk-screen printing.

One of the many phrases which remind me of the deepest sense of my journey through life and art, and which has accompanied me along my way, is this by W. B. Yeats: “I’m looking for the face I had before the world was made."

Thoughts on the Telephone process

I am amazed about the project. I truly believe that we are a unit, as one mind, soul, spirit creating a single work of art regardless of language or where we are. Participating in the project is very heartwarming for me. When I received the poem in English was for me very enjoyable. I read the poem and I had the feeling of not being alone, of participating in something bigger to me, and share a pain, a claim , a cry. Thank you to all.
