Mauricio Limon

Mauricio Limon

 

Mauricio Limon collaborates with wildpalms, supported by his mexican gallery Galeria Hilario Galguera. We have developed a strong tie with this great upcoming artist.

Mauricio is currently based in Amsterdam, attending the Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten residency. With his work, Mauricio analyzes anthropoligical, political and social structures within society. To be able to extract and identify the structural characteristics, he works closely with members of selected groups and classes, e.g. through interviews, following and observing, as well as placing them in new environments. These processes and outcomes are being translated and depicted through various media, such as video, painting, drawing and lithography, at times, as well through performance.
