Omero Leyva

omero leyva pintura y dibujo 2008 installation view Omero Leyva

A combination of painting and drawing, Omero Leyva creates large format installations where he takes on popular Mexican culture, legends and iconographic religious images to develop his visual practice. Through these representations, he intends to speak of the issue of migration in his native state of Guerrero, a provincial region of Mexico that is completely isolated from contemporary life. His installations are not only a dynamic fusion of different formats, mediums and techniques, but also of images that converse with one another, creating a visual narrative that is closely tied with rural life, immigration and the politics of transcultural identity.

Omera Leyva was born in Villa Nicolás Bravo in Mexico. He graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado “La Esmeralda” México, DF in 2008. He had his first solo show the same year entitled Pintura y Dibujo at “La Esmeralda” Gallery. He is the recipient of the Sylvia Pawa Acquisition Prize, Third Drawing Biennial (Mexico) in 2007.

    Omero. Te hemos recordardo en unión de los jóvenes que tuvimos la oportunidad de compartir contigo, pero además de ello, se me solicito que colaborara con el marco y la conservación de tu obra.

    Lleve a dos carpinteros que conocia pero como hubo dificultad con UNIPAZ y no les cancelaron están excepticos con la UIS.

    Sin embargo, de nuevo los llame pero hay inquietud con relación a que se le aplica para preservar el lienzo, porque yo desconozco conque materiales hiciste la obra. Por favor, comunícate conmigo para ver si es posible tenerlo bien instalado cuando tu nos vuelvas a visitar, que espero sea pronto.
