Daniel Guzmán's work seems anguished and intimate, yet it is also bitterly ironic. As if regurgitating an adolescent impulse toward the grotesque, the macabre, and the obscene, the artist's drawings and phrases convey disillusionment, unspeakable urges, and dark frustrations. Skulls, commercial logos, Aztec symbols, cartoon creatures, swastikas, centerfolds, and fireballs populate his work, and he has frequently reflected on Mexican culture's condition of colonization and its customization of American icons.
