About Arturo Hinojos

hinojosSmall square shapes punctuate the space of his work -windows that penetrate and open the work's textures and colors… His recent works are the result of a process that stemmed from an academic structure and developed into abstractions that now identify him. The plastic language of Arturo Hinojos is made up of elements, signs and symbols that arrive brilliantly at abstraction. Transparencies, lines, colors, planes, sequential images become simplified, flowing into a unique and poetic figure.
- Berta Taracena, Art critic

I paint, therefore I am. Every stroke is a letter, every set of strokes a word articulated in endless series, creating a discourse and communicating my experience and feelings in a constant sharing through color, textures, composition, and movement. This discipline depicts my most profound inner self. It is the result of being in contact with myself and provides me with the possibility of communicating in multiple and infinite ways. Thus, each spectator can read something in my work and interpret it according to his or her interests and sensibility.
- Arturo Hinojos, Artist
