Meet Our Humanitarian Artists
Born in 1972 in Mexico City Carlos moved to Guadalajara at the age of 6yrs.
where he was exposed to the work of many masters like Orozco, Tamayo, Dr. Atl, Maria Izquierdo, Javier Campos Cabello amongst many other.
He participated in student exhibitions at the Universidad de Guadalajara and invitational exhibitions at the Cultural Center Hospicio Cabañas.
In the mid 80’s Carlos remained on the city’s scene by participating in various solo and
group exhibitions in the metropolitan area and Zapopan.
This Spanish born artist began training in the glazing industry in his late teens. The method by which his incredible glass art is created is through a process of cutting, polishing, etching, chipping, carving and even breaking. The work becomes a part of his futuristic self and reflection of thoughts from his past. Joseph’s fascination with glass as an art medium allows him the opportunity to enhance our environments both architecturally and esthetically. These compelling works of art are designed to invite participation. They are neither lyrical nor narrative and transcend a message to the viewer in its mass and title. They are physical objects in which a feeling is forever frozen. It is now up to us to relate our experiences and thoughts to appreciate its magnitude and context.
