About

Combining the delicate touch of classical painting and the rigid 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 light and shadow to create the illusion of a light source passing by or the subject rotating in space. Within each artwork there are no walls or 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 magenta 39 inch tall by 31 inch wide original artwork is created with oil paint on canvas. It is stretched, wired and ready to hang. The sides are painted and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the back of the artwork. Free local Los Angeles area delivery and free professional installation in the local Los Angeles area is included, including placement and hardware. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

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.
