Mexico-based artist Eduardo Sarabia is known best for his satirical works that explore the dark underbelly of the Mexico-US border . Born in L.A to Mexican immigrant parents, Sarabia returned to Guadalajara in 2003, where he continues to offer an insightful and humorous perspective on the post-colonial relations that have shaped a "border culture" characterized by drug trafficking, surveillance, and immigration politics. Here, Sarabia shares his thoughts about some of his favorite works from Mexico City's Material Art Fair, opening February 9th. See the full preview here.
I found this piece interesting because I am currently working with a lot of landscapes, and somehow I liked the scenario with the jungle-like fantasy world. And I like that it is not a realistic painting; it is combined with imagination.
