Carlos Bazan a Mixtec painter and muralist was born on October 27, 1993 in the town of San Cristóbal Suchixtlahuaca, Oaxaca, in a family of limited resources. He is known to be one of the promising young artists of plastic Oaxacan arts. From infancy to almost a teenager, he had no taste for the fine arts, but his love for art began when he visited the house of culture of San Pablo Teposcula, Oaxaca, and saw a work by the artist Enrique Martorell, right after he started doing graffiti on any street wall.
Trees sticking out of a dense colorful jungle, its roots sink in the space or air and at the same time in floating fish, rabbits and flowers. Fish with trees as a tail, birds part of the trees. And the moons, the main point of reference where all the colors come alive by the contrasting clarity of the moon.
It seems that Carlos Bazan warned that not in heaven but on earth is where we find the richness of colors. So the contrast is not violent but narrative. All colors in one and one is all species.
Clearly, the logic of Carlos Bazan’s work has to do with impressions; they lead the eye by an ecosystem of colors which inner significance perhaps wants to tell us – indeed, much in the way of the view of life of the people from the very south of Mexico – THAT ALL IS ONE.
