CARLOS AMORALES (1970, Mexico City, Mexico).
His imagery combines contemporary sub-culture, traditional crafts, popular culture and conceptual art. Having grown up in both settings he painlessly moves between Mexican and European iconography creating his very own aesthetics. In the late 1990’ies Amorales started out with setting up Wrestling performances, such as are wildly popular in contemporary Mexico, at leading museums such as the Tate Modern, MOMA San Francisco and Centre Pompidou among others. In 2003 his work turned to vector drawing, digital animations and videos. Recent projects circled around the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City.His work is part of important collections as the Tate Modern (London), The Museum of Modern Art (New York), Museum Boijmaans van Beunigen (Rotterdam) and Fundación/Colección Jumex (Mexico).
