Biography

Antonio, born 1996, is a Mexican artist based in Mexico City and New York City. With a passion for painting that began at the age of 15, Antonio has dedicated himself to painting and sculpture ever since.

After completing his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts in 2020, Antonio’s artistic journey continued to flourish. He spent a semester in Tanzania, expanding his artistic horizons and immersing himself in diverse cultural experiences.

His body of work explores the question: what remains of the body in a post-industrial universe that insists on breaking its means of habitability? For Antonio, in the midst of a barren world, strewn with remains and bare bones, a new dismembered yet equally desiring body emerges and inhabits these spaces destroyed by the ravages of progress. Antonio’s processes are marked by the same nature as his work: methodological rupture in favor of an eroticism of intuition. From there, everything residual becomes material susceptible to re-creation; those industrial substrates contribute to the dimension of a polyhedral work.

Antonio has exhibited his artwork in numerous group shows both in Mexico and the United States, most recently at Maia Contemporary and the Museum of Modern Art, both in Mexico City. His artistic accomplishments have been recognized with diverse awards, including the Creative Achievement Award and Curator’s Award from California College of the Arts. Continuing to pursue his artistic growth, Antonio has embarked on a new chapter in September 2023 as he starts his Master of Fine Arts at Columbia University.
