Since 1998, Guillermo Barraza has focused on abstract drawing, one of the most important art forms of the 20th century. What fascinates the artist most about this form of art is that it negates completely the representation of reality and is based in the idea that colors and forms have an artistic quality of their own.
Barraza’s favorite working instrument is the ball-point pen. He needs at least one or two of them for every drawing. To complete and detail his work and give it a very fine structure, he uses a graphite pen.
Human forms such as the forms of the feminine body, eroticism and curves play an important role in his work. His drawings show life and creation. Characteristic features are eyes, embryos and snakes. With these elements, Barraza likes to play with the observer. The artist says he can best express himself through colors, textures, compositions and the construction of forms.
He joined the artists in the Casa de los Tres Mundos in 2003, and has worked there since.
