Statement

Born in El Salvador I studied art at the University of El Salvador under artist Camilo Minero, In 1980 I traveled to Mexico City (DF), where I study printmaking in the San Carlos Academy of Arts. I returned to El Salvador in 1985 to exhibit my work but I was forced to leave due to the social and political conflict, a few years later I arrived in LA where I have continued to work ever since.

My artistic expression is born and developed from a total identity with my inner and contemporary social life. I have absorbed my surroundings and struggles, using these experiences in my work, the symbols I use are a product of my experience and observations in the United States from a Latin American perspective but also seen with an encounter and connection with ancestral elements which I implement.
