Born in 1970 in Mexico City. Lives and works in Mexico.
Carlos Amorales is a Mexican artist that works with mixed media, such as video, painting, animation, drawing, sculpture and performance. Stretched between images and signs, the artist constructs his own visual language, which concludes in displaying a variety of topics and projects, from wrestling performances to drawings based on his vector editing database named “Liquid Archive” created in 1998. Influenced by traditional, popular and conceptual representations, Amorales’ body of works emphasizes on symbolism and the repetitiveness of the image.
He graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, (The Netherlands) in 1995 and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, (The Netherlands) in 1997.
