The Agave, Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico and Me 

A mixture of Mexico and the History of Art. I like being Mexican and I want  show off the magic that my country has through painting. inspired by  some of my favorite artists like Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh, I'm joining  to Mexico with great works of modern painting. The collection of 16 paintings by  oil painting is going to convert the central building of the Universidad Panamericana de  Guadalajara in a New York museum during this semester.

The process of this collection is very important, it started when I was  studying abroad and painted a landscape of Amatitán, Jalisco. none of my  colleagues knew what an agave was but if they knew what Tequila was,  some from Europe, Asia and the United States. I realized how we have so many  jewels and wealth that they do not know outside of here. Walking in the Museums of New  York could imagine the agaves floating above the works and had images of  Mexico all the time in my mind. When they ask me to make an exhibition for the  Up, I quickly realized that I want to start transmitting this message in my  city and in the place where one day I was a student. 

The part of the process in the study took several months and it was a challenge for me to work  with the different styles such as Impressionism, Cubism, Renaissance,  Fauvism, Surrealism and Abstract. The union of different styles through the  reinterpretations of iconic works that reimagine the timeline of Art  with Mexico being the protagonist.
