Jurena Munõz Lagunas, Ju Mu, with Peruvian-Chilean roots born in 1990 in Hannover. Studied fashion design at the Universitat de les Illes Balears in Palma. She lives as a freelance artist in Berlin.
Her works are inspired by the cultures and imagery of the indigenous peoples of Latin America, prehispanic and contemporary art. Themes and representations spring from her own fantasies. They are nourished by myths, legends and stories of the vast Andean and Amazon regions and show a coexistence of man, the spirit world and nature, with elements of shaman worship.
They are about identity, tradition and culture, past and present, life and death. Her works catch and capture the attention of viewers immediately. For her, there is neither pure good nor absolute evil. Her paintings are, as she says herself, “colorful and loud.” With mysterious figures, mythical creatures, people, animals, monsters, enigmatic symbols and mysterious masks.
Enrique Pichardo Egea was born in Mexico City on April 17, 1973, where he currently lives and works. Pichardo paints rapidly and elegantly. With soft sweeps, as well as hard lines and creates smooth, magnificently iridescent color spaces. He paints with his whole personality, with body, mind and soul and thus authentically presents what he wants to communicate. Faces and figures he paints with almost childlike impartiality archaic. Creatures from the depths of human existence. Archetypes.
