I had early aspirations to be an artist, however, due to&nbsp;unforeseen&nbsp;obstacles, I chose to ignore my talents. About ten years later, I felt like my artistic expression could not be held back any longer. Life in Mexico is a major influence in my work and it is often portrayed in my artworks. My hometown's culture, rich history and deep sense of spirituality is reflected by my bright and colorful palette. My mother still remains to be one of my main influences. She taught me to feel, experience, and appreciate life."</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial, 'Arial Unicode MS';">By now, his work has been on view at The Coca-Cola Collection in Atlanta, The Alabama Museum, Florida International University, Agora Gallery in New York and Wynwood murals in Miami, to name a few.
