was born in Mexico City, studied fine arts at ENAP and the Royal Academy of San Carlos UNAM, in Mexico City.Adrian Has had several exhibitions in Mexico, USA, Canada, and Denmark where he lives and work.
The artist builds up his paintings with repetitive patterns and translucent interiors. Masking figures into place one after the other forming a dance-like ritual. The environments contrast in their un-repetitve nature with the carbon copy of the figures. Mental games, collages and animal factories they all play their part in an absurd tale that very well could mirror the mass production of the commodity, the cloning of animals and the culture of the same.
Drawing has always been more than a pleasure to me. It is more a result of a necessity. Through drawing I have an approach to forms, I am able to observe them more closely and at the same time to think their relationship with the space surrounding them.

Repetition then, has come now to a normal standard, with no room to awe of workmanship, no uniqueness, just a straight line heading to homogeneity.
Where does that leave the body, how are we influenced in a repetitive pattern-like space; one that maybe doesn’t have a focal point of importance but many of the same value. How do we move in a serial space composed not on traditional perspective but in a system of super imposed layers, some of them abstract, organic, surreal, dense.
In my body of work this is reflected by the use of flat or homogeneous space that works more like a layer.
