Kikyz1313 was born in 1988 in Querétaro, Mexico, and creates beautifully intricate ink, graphite, and watercolor works on paper. From beneath the initially alluring and understated first impression of the works emerge unexpected oppositions and abject tensions. Studies in the afflicted wretchedness of humanity, her work is neither despondent not obviously gory, but rather presents an aestheticized nightmare of sublime abhorrence; ambiguously gorgeous despite its agonizing discomfort.
She received a BFA from the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro, and had her first solo exhibition at the Museo de la Ciudad de Querétaro. She has completed an artist residency at the Nordic Watercolor Museum in Skärhamn, Sweden.
Showed in several art fairs and group exhibitions in the USA, Berlin and London as recently presented her second solo show entitles ‘The Progeny of Chaos’ in Los Angeles, California.
Kikys1313 is currently under the representation of Thinkspace Gallery.
