Hugo D. Villa lives and works in Guadalajara. He graduated with a degree in Visual Arts with an orientation in painting from the University of Guadalajara, at the University Center for Art, Architecture and Design (CUAAD). With his work, mostly on easel, he has participated in various group and individual exhibitions in various states of the Mexican Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. His work is situated in the fluid between the figurative and the abstract, representing characters and figures in transformation, as if they were in a process of decomposition or emotional catharsis. They lead the viewer to make an analogy between the richness of mysticism and the energy of the psyche; and in turn, to the paradox between the exquisiteness of reality and its repulsion.
