BIOGRAPHY

From a very young age he showed aptitudes and a taste for painting and studying on his own the works of the great masters. He entered the painting school “La Esmeralda”, in Mexico City.

Ahuatzi can be considered as one of the continuators of Mexican painting, promoted in the last century by another Tlaxcala painter: Agustín Arrieta. Ahuatzi has influenced the new generations of Tlaxcala painters, motivating them to rescue Mexican themes. His works, like Arrieta, invite you to appreciate vases, fruit bowls, cupboards or fruits of the earth such as custard apples, pomegranates, sapotes, all of them painted so real that it appears that one could taste and touch them.

He handles light and makes it play on copper, aluminum or clay, he forces it to give life to crystals, glasses and bottles and to make the wines transparent, and it does not neglect the offerings of the deceased, with their dead bread, sweets of pumpkin, marigold flowers and incense sticks, in such a way that his complete work becomes food for sight and memory. His paintings have been exhibited in galleries in Brazil, London, New York, Texas, Monterrey, Mexico City, Aguascalientes and Villahermosa, as well as in the Cervantes festival that takes place in the state of Guanajuato and other places in the country.

The exhibitions at the Villa de Madrid Cultural Center, the Pinacoteca of the State of Tlaxcala, the Museum of Mexico City and the Art Expo New York stand out.
