Joe Barros Profile Picture

Joe Barros Chaparro was born in Mexico City in the winter of 1971. He studied graphic design at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana. His first paintings and prints date back from the ’90s when he also participated in several group exhibitions. In a certain way his art enthusiasm was released from design, one day suddenly no reason with, he started to paint, he got that impulse as an order by the life itself to be realized through him into the form, he became into that nature intelligence instrument which rules on him as his inner resolution.

“There is a vibe that occurs when I paint. It’s always there during the full process and is precisely what I want to share to the beholder; such that vibration is when conscience arises and dictates to me what needs to be painted. That is the mission to perform and to be accomplished once the idea emerges until the very last stroke when I'm signing the finished artwork.”
