Jose Carlos Zubiaur

Combining the delicate touch of painting and the imagery of computer rendered graphics, Jose Carlos Zubiaur’s artworks transcend what is seen on the canvas. Zubiaur strategically maintains the artificial feeling of high gloss fabricated objects and uses this emphasis on highlights and shadows to create the illusion of a light source passing by or the subject rotating in space. Within each artwork there are no walls our boundaries, simply endless space surrounding the changing subjects which seem to simultaneously exist in both the digital and physical world.

Born in Orizaba, Mexico in 1987, Zubiaur was always passionate about creating art with technology. At the University of Veracruz, he studied digital video, visual effects, 3D animation and filmmaking. Now, based in Mexico City, he has translated these skills into creating unique paintings of artificial fantasy.
