I am a Mexican artist currently living and working in The Netherlands.

 

Since I can remember, I always felt inspired by the work of my grandfather Jorge Sánchez Hernández (1926-2016, México), a great Mexican painter. He encouraged me to find my own voice in a self-taught way by looking at the works of other painters, such as Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini, Dorothea Tanning and Remedios Varo.

 

I studied History of Art at Universidad Iberoamericana in México City (2001-2005). My deepest interest layed in iconography and symbolism.

 

I graduated in Master in Fine Arts in Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht (HKU, 2016-2017) where I produced experimental video and installation.

On 2018 I began painting as my full time job taking commissions and sending artworks abroad around the world.

On 2019 I hope to explore new collections and topics on my own besides taking commissions.

So let's see what happens!
