Why did you pick this picture?
I chose “Sacred Garden #4” because it is part of my latest series titled “Sacred Garden”
Where did the idea for this art come from?
This idea came about after meditating in my garden. I get most of my inspiration from nature, I have always enjoyed being surrounded by flowers, trees, and plants. The colors of the flowers and the different green tones of the leaves on a tree stimulate my mind, thus awakening new ideas in me.
What does this art mean to you?
The “Sacred Garden” series is an attempt to normalize sex, and to bring a new way of looking at erotic art, not only erotic art but sex as a whole. “Sacred Garden #4” represents the beauty of sex and how sex is part of nature.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I was born into a very art oriented family. My mother a Mexican actress and poet and my father a Mexican muralist and abstract artist. I was exposed to art from day one by spending time in father’s studio, and ever since art has been part of my everyday life. At the age of 14 I moved from my hometown Cuernavaca in Mexico to San Diego California in the US. After graduating High School I continued my art studies at MiraCosta College in California and at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
What more can you tell us about your art?
One of my goals as an artist is to normalize sex through my drawings and to erase the idea that sex is dirty and something to be ashamed of. Our society has portrayed the act of sex as unnatural when it is actually the most natural thing. We live in a society where sex is offensive and violence is something natural, and I find that ludicrous. In this series called “Sacred Garden” I mixed both sex and nature to get my point across, sex is the most natural thing. Without sex none of us would be here.
