Mezcal Ritual: A New Painting Series by Alejandro Meza
Mezcal Ritual is a new series of paintings by Alejandro Meza that celebrate the pleasure and succulent treats of an all-night bacchanal. In addition, cultural icons and symbols are used in this series with flirtatious details to convey festivity and cheerfulness. Moreover, Mezcal Ritual is a playful registry of all the ingredients for a perfect party. This new series of paintings presents elements from prehispanic cultures, colonial iconography, and global pop culture. Indeed, all these elements fuse to create a cocktail that intoxicates even the most agnostic.
"In the details of my work, the linearity of the shape of the characters stands out; since, for me, the understanding of the line is essential for a drawing that expresses emotions and experiences." - Alejandro Meza
Alejandro Meza is a contemporary painter currently living in Mexico City. He uses gesture and color to create a new expressive figuratism. Additionally, his mysterious gestural painting style is a veiled portrait of popular culture where color and texture project the image’s abstract nostalgic power. In fact, Meza addresses cultural taboos and cliches with a notion of syncretism that captures an expression of contemporary Mexican identity.
