Guillermo Bejarano

My paintings are an example of figurative abstraction that expresses my cultural driven ideas. Having acquired the knowledge of cultural studies * (e.g.,contextual relatives) of which has influenced my fine arts philosophy and practice rendering hybrid forms that assembles or composes my work of art.

* cultural anthropology, art in history, sociology, class, economics and politics.

These paintings deal with artistic mediations of art forms that appear or exist in the pictorial space. Visual perception [in space] is in our past and relates to our present with our future art forms. I see this as merging old (tribe) and new (modern-culture) visualizations. Estas pinturas tratan de mediaciones artísticas de formas de arte que aparecen o existen en el espacio pictórico. La percepción visual [en el espacio] está en nuestro pasado y se relaciona con nuestro presente con nuestras formas de arte futuras. Veo esto como fusionando antiguos (tribu) y nuevas visualizaciones (cultura-modernas).
