Enrique Chagoya

“While you’re painting, move your eyes back and forth between your paper and the model as fast as you can. That’s a little secret I’ll give to you.”

“My works deal with a lot of opposites, and their interaction produces a third element, a synthesis, that occurs in the mind of the viewer.”

“Sometimes I don’t even know what they mean,”

“For me, it’s very important to understand the relationship between art and society,” he adds. “I get a lot of insight from understanding the social conditions in which art is created.”

“Enrique encourages us to paint quickly, to get the essence the first time we pick up our brushes,” she said.
