ABOUT ME

I always wanted to become an illuminator, because I believe in romance between books and painting, although nowadays there are no illuminated manuscripts makers.
Painting is an intellectual crucible, while poetry is the philosopher's stone which turns skill and raw materials into art.
My twin passions are: creating artwork and art teaching.
Teaching is the greatest art laboratory.

BIOGRAPHY

Sacristán´s paintings describe Mexican identity in present, past and future; at the crossroads where the old and the new world collapse, in an incessant search that arises from history, sometimes real and sometimes dreamed, through the pre-Hispanic worldview and Gothic fantasy to show Mexican being as a universal presence.

TECHNIQUE

Graphite pencil, color pencil, ink and charcoal drawing are definitely my favorite techniques along with watercolors, which I love to work like a musical partiture creating color harmonies. I work with Oils and acrylic too, but I prefer a darker palette and obscure ideas for these mediums. To work in a painting is like climbing a mountain: drawing and composition are the way up, this is the hard part, filled with philosophy, poetry and conflict, but when the drawing is finished and it is time to apply painting it is entirely different, painting is pure emotion, this is the way down. To paint is conquering the mountain.
