ENRIQUE MINJARES

Enrique Minjares Padilla (Ensenada, B.C., 1977) is a visual artist graduated from the National School of Plastic Arts at UNAM.

Enrique’s work explores different possibilities of production and perception of the pictorial medium using drawing, painting (the game that can exist between these two) and intervention as means of expression. He seeks that the viewer identifies himself subjectively with his pieces so that he can appropriate them and integrate them into his personal history.

His body of work consists of a series of investigations around the image as a means of representation and concept, dismantling it, to rebuild it from a rethinking of the formal aspects of painting.

Through illustrations of tragedies caused by the retrograde disorder of human consciousness, he crosses the boundaries between fiction, reality and the media narrative of contemporary history.

Starting from themes and series that allude to current society, the artist turns to a visceral work process committed to himself, far from conceptual presumptions or trends.

His work has been exhibited in public and private institutions, in Mexico and abroad.

Enrique lives and works in Mexico City.
