Their art is focused on topics surrounding accessibility, inclusion, and visual storytelling; advocating to remove barriers that affect our community on a local, state, federal, and international level. Along with their minimalist style, Gustavo uses an in depth knowledge of color theory to communicate with the audience through a concise color palette. Allowing for the viewer to formulate their own emotion, connection, and thought about each individual piece. Gustavo is also a Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE) Certified Juror. Studio visits are available by appointment along with open studio on the second and third Saturday of each month.
As an immigrant living in United States, their artwork explores cross cultural exchange, and navigating between two countries at different stages of their life. They focus on formative moments, creating them with a minimalist style, and original designs through painting, drawing, photography, sculpting, and printmaking.
Their current work highlights buildings from their home state of Guanajuato and abstracts of the Anthropocene epoch focused on the environment and migration surrounding the US and Mexico border with ethical altruistic theory. Born in the birthplace of the Mexican Independence, they feel a strong connection exploring themes on identity, culture, society, migration, and geography.
