Fresh, bright colors explode onto contemporary, clean compositions of bodies with objects of desire transforming into exquisite palettes for the mind to get lost in and wander. And in a city of dreamers, ACE of LA is selling the dream.
Born 1987 in Mexico City, ACE of LA had a nomadic upbringing, moving back and forth between Mexico and the United States many times during his early childhood. Although a transitory period of countless moves, it was through this experience that allowed him to mold his mind into transporting him to self realized places of peace, bliss, and contemplation.
In the physicality though, ACE of LA kept being drawn to the history and cultural intricacies of Mexico and how they compared to the United States, giving rise to nuances in which he could formulate a framework of relations. These connections would in turn be the catalyst behind his boundless ideas, drawing inspiration from eclectic artists such as David LaChapelle, Shepard Fairey, and even Diego Rivera, yet not as inherently political.
And even if political undertones do arise in ACE of LA’s art from time to time, success in the works lies on the subtlety of the message. The aesthetic feel and emotion ravaging from within the images onto the surface is of utmost importance as it is through these experiential moments that will truly motivate and make a lasting impact.
