Jazael Olguín


(México, 1987)

Lives and works in Mexico City

Jazael is founding member of Cooperativa Cráter Invertido

Jazael is interested in the intersections between genres and media: portraits that suggest landscapes, still lifes that are comics, the search for a space between figuration-abstraction; the borderline language between drawing and painting. Jazael mixes times, layers of art history and the individual digestion of popular imaginary through a crooked and submerged look
