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.
This one-of-a-kind yellow 35 inch square original artwork is created with oil paint on canvas. It is ready to hang. The sides are painted black and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available.
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.
Zubiaur says of his art,” My work is based on the concept of identity as a process of constant change, where the perception of the individual mutates constantly through symbolic systems and abstract language, where we can reinvent ourselves. I pretend to direct the meaning of the work as a specific creation that works in its singular context. To create a continuous development of the work as a language that is independent to a specific symbolic system or to a mixture of theoretical conjectures.”
Zubiaur's work has been selected in the Second Biennial of Art Veracruz, XVI Biennial of Painting Rufino Tamayo, "Mexico: The Future is Unwritten: Contemporary Artists from Mexico" in Venice, Italy. His work has been exhibited in Mexico, United States, Italy, Argentina and Cuba.

Born in Orizaba, Mexico in 1987, Jose Carlos Zubiaur holds a Master’s Degree in Visual Arts from the Universidad Veracruzana. He has studied digital video, visual effects, 3D modeling and animation. He attended a Cinematography workshop at the New York Film Academy, New York. Now based in Mexico City, he has translated these skills into creating original paintings of artificial fantasy.
Zubiaur proposes to understand art through a more emotional and intuitive approach, where the work not only uses existing symbols, but also creates new meaning and becomes a symbol in itself. He seeks to highlight the concept of personality as a process of continuous change, in which the perception of the individual is constantly transformed by digital systems, where we are capable of reinventing ourselves, transforming and tweaking our personality.
