Roberto Munguia



"Roberto Munguia likes to work with a number of different media. And at each instance a very different aesthetic emerges. His ink drawings are composed of languorous calligraphic strokes and loosely balanced solid forms, sometimes additionally punctuated with flowering washes of diluted ink. He achieves a nice balance between his flowering forms and lines and the white of the paper. These works reflect a quite and solid sensibility. Munguia's prints reveal pre-Columbian influences in their titles and Islamic influences in their mosaic-like composition. These works are as enchanting and mysterious as the creatures that inhabit them."

Suzanne Akhtar, 1999
