Artist Statement:

The name 'Viajero' evolved from a caricature into the philosophy of my work. The term "Viajero" is a representation of our journeys and my purpose is to carry the consciousness of timeless being, in the midst of a time-bound experience. Family, culture, history, and life are the inspirations of my work. These are the ingredients of my identity. Various types Of wood are my current canvases of choice. The cracks, colors, textures, and "imperfections" of the wood help support the stories. As an artist, I realize the importance and impact that art has in the life of an individual and how I may facilitate education, change, and growth. My main objective is to get all people to identify with and appreciate the varied cultural traditions and lifestyles that exist within communities.
