He paints in his unique contemporary Mexican folk style, depicting stories from his family and his grandmother who was a medicinal witch. His paintings also tell stories of the town he grew up in, the history of colonialism in his country, The Declaration of the Lacandona Jungle that he lived through, and the fascinating exchanges between the many communities surrounding his little town.
