For Mexican artist Bayrol Jiménez, drawing has no spatial limits. Explosive lines and mysterious beings create eerie scenarios, where an alternate and at times nightmarish reality is constructed. According to Bayrol, his work is like “a perpetual mutation. Neither the limitations of the support or the architectural forms are trouble; I like to play transgressing the envelopes where I can negotiate with the space.”[...]
