Motivated by the lack of knowledge of my own culture, since around 2004, I started to read and study the Nahuatl-Aztec culture-religion. Inspired by my newfound knowledge of the achievements, principles, and spirituality of the Mexica, I commenced an Aztec art collection in 2007. As my ancestors once kept their culture-religion and beliefs recorded through art within codices. With my own style of graphic art I practice this same exercise in order to record and share my perspective on the Aztec culture-religion.
Each individual drawing was inspired by creation myths, a significant event in history or pertains to a specific god. Considering myself a toltecatl (artist of the spirit), a reference to the Toltecs, Aztec predecessors, who were highly skilled artisans. While reading material regarding these topics, I envisioned them, picking the best possible scene which captured the idea, I attempted to bring it to life. I researched and included glyphs, base reliefs, statues, pyramids, frescos, ceramics, and other artifacts which correlate with the intended message. I wrote description letters, for most drawings, which describes the cultural derivation the drawing is based on and describes the drawing itself. I try to keep the drawings creative enough to capture the full attention of the viewer and the letters as brief, accurate, and informative as possible to best enlighten all interested persons. May you enjoy my creations.
