“I & U / 1,2 1,2″ Art Exhibit by Santos Guerrero

Posted on February 8, 2016

Reality is a mental labyrinth / ignorance, its linear beast.
When ignorance fuels destruction / history, strategically repeats.
Awareness of awareness / elevates the dreamer from its sleep.
Dare to dream awake / encourage memory beyond illusionary feats.
If knowledge is power / grant wisdom to reign supreme.
Unearth your history / from this labyrinth we dream.
Ye are stars / reality sets free.
Love is the path / imagination has its doors / transformation, your key.

Santos Guerrero’s compositions blend inter-dimensional time/space narratives to create surrealist landscapes, often centered around anti-form line compositions. He employs a vast range of techniques from oil-based, acrylic, industrial and aerosol paints to avant-garde forms involving various forms of medium-applications, all with a keen eye for the emotive power of color.

The opening reception on February 19th from 8PM-midnight features a music line-up including Wonky Powers recording artist George West and deejay FREDster with special guest, multi-platinum music producer The ARE, whose credits include work for LL Cool J, Nicki Minaj and Houston’s own K-OTIX, whose latest album features cover art by Guerrero.
In honor of the artist’s hometown of Monterrey, Mexico a Santos-inspired ceviche and michelada will be available for purchase at the opening reception.
