Daniel Marquez
Artista Plastico
Baja California, Mexico

My visual art experience started in the border town of Cd. Juarez, Chih. Mexico. When I started painting I was only interested in making beautiful traditional landscapes and portraits of Elvis and Rock and Roll legends on black velvet. Then I moved to L.A. As I evolved as an artist I became interested in many techniques such as airbrush, silkscreen and monoserigraph. My surfaces changed; I worked with metal, paper, canvas, fiberglass mesh, synthetic panels and ceramic tiles, My intention has become to create art works that draw the viewer into contemplation and engage them in finding a meaning.

I work with different styles in a combination that represents my point of view. I paint my vision of the environment using the experience of the past, to create a conversation with my reality.

Images in my artwork are from my feelings of confusion, struggle and faith. Elements of repetition to express the continuing occurrence of similar events. Memories of the past… Visions of cosmic future.
