J.M. Valdivia is an American artist born in 1986. His work is the result of his struggle to understand the life he witnesses. He is interested in the psychological and sociological limitations and has documented himself in an exploration to dismantle his identity. The work is gentle, alluring and at times absurd. Above all he celebrates and is empathetic about his subjects no matter how worn, vacant or proud they may appear.
