Mexican artist Curiot creates vibrant mythical beasts blending human and animal forms, which allude to Mexican handcrafts and folk art. The works are highly detailed, rich in colour, symbolic and mystic. Inspired from Pre-Hispanic cultures, nature and urban contemporaneity, Curiot explores the relationship between man and nature.
Curiot currently working and living in one of the largest cities of the world, Mexico City. His work has been seen on walls and exhibitions all around the world.
– Curiot has been on my personal wish list since I first met him and saw him paint in Germany a few years ago. So what can I say? I´m really happy to be able to present this artist to our visitors for 2015. The colours and ancient patterns in Curiots murals are really beautiful. It´s really no wonder a lot of admirers over the world call him “El Curiot” – he´s an insanely talented master of spray cans, says curator Shai Dahan.
– When I first saw Curiots work I instantly got the feeling that we must have him in our line up. His way of interpreting the relationship between man and nature in a real explosion of colours is really amazing. I´m so excited to see what he will create for us in Borås, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.
