Artistas Emergentes: Conversacion con Aguilas
Tuesday, October 15, 5:00 PM
Comparten con nosotres el Jueves y tener una conversacion con Simon Malvaez y J Manuel Carmona.
Muy introvertido, pero trabajando en ello desde siempre. Nací en Tijuana (México) y viví en la Ciudad de México por varios años. Actualmente viviendo en San Francisco. Me gusta hacer ilustraciones, y lo que amo más es ver mi trabajo en casa de alguien más. Es todo, los amo y gracias por apoyar a artistas emergentes.
Born in Tijuana, a border city of Mexico and the U.S. He studied graphic design in Mexico City. He currently lives in San Francisco. Inspired by the places he has lived and The Bauhaus founding philosophies. Simón takes basic materials, familiar shapes, and primary colors, pastels, and metallics to celebrate bodies and personalities that have influenced him. Latino culture and the LGBTQ+ community are bold and vibrant in all of his work’s. The geometry and composition invites you to disassemble each attribute of the piece and then reinterpret the projected symbols upon the pieces as a whole. It is an invitation to appreciate and deconstruct identity, diversity, representation and inclusion.
J. Manuel Carmona, born in Texas along the Mexican border, raised in Mexico, and then spending the majority of my adult life in the USA, my work is greatly informed by my binational Mexican/American heritage, my queer identity, and the intersection of the LGBTQI and Latino communities of San Francisco. I have explored these communities and concepts through varied and diverse artistic approaches, creating murals, posters, sculptures, and art installations that in some way satisfy my own personal curiosity, respond to the immediate context, honor the message, and impact the spectator. As I continue to explore the power of public art, I hope to use my work to inspire individuals with the pride and love that I feel for my two countries of heritage, my LGBTQI community, and to bring focus to the duality of millions of Mexican-Americans living and traveling between both sides of this border.
