Tlahuac Mata

My work consists of telling stories through landscapes and environments. Therefore, in my early paintings I tried to sketch the meaning of dreams about the future. Not only the future we desire but also the future we think is possible to achieve, furthermore, the future world we will end up with.
More recently, I’ve been working on video games about the foreseeable future, besides the present day.
Consequently, my main goal is that you, whoever is reading this, ask yourself what you can do to shape that future in the best possible way.
