From the Artist:
My main inspiration is the border, I seek that the audience experiences that particular reality through art. Many of the images and icons from my own experience are unknown to the general public...

Another concept that I use often is the wall between Mexico and the States. The meaning of the border is something that I always grew up with, I had a childhood with aspects that delimited my experience...
The artistic experience is lived very differently in El Paso and Philadelphia, my works have been forged through the beauty and cultural richness of the border and also the very limitations of the region. But I wouldn't trade my experience for nothing
