Luis Alfonso Villalobos

The work of Luis Alfonso Villalobos (1976, Guadalajara, Mexico) is based on painting as a support, but exceeds the medium’s attributes to think about it in both conceptual and material terms, extending it to the production of collage, sculpture, and installation. In addition to the compositions that combine figures, contexts and color fields in two-dimensional formats, Villalobos is interested in the material uses of painting, recognizing them as objects in themselves.

Understanding painting as “a machine to live in”, his work presents references to Modernist architecture, scenarios where natural elements take their place in civilization, as well as revisions of art history, including notes on the readymade, comics, and design. In this way, his work involves the conceptualization of architectural manners –models and planes– materialized though pictorial language and elements.

Graduated in Industrial Design in Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (México). His recent exhibition include: Ave Peregrina, Museo de Arte de Zapopan, Zapopan, Mexico; Today’s luxuries are tomorrow’s norms, SMoCA, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, EEU; Esox Lucius, CUADRO22, Chur, Switzerland; Mexico; Echar Perlas a los Cerdos, Galería CURRO, Guadalajara, Mexico. Villalobos participated in group shows like Black & White & In Between: Contemporary Art from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard, California; +52. Paisajes recientes, Fundación Calosa, Irapuato, México; En Hombros de Gigantes, Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City, México; y XVI Bienal de Pintura Rufino Tamayo, Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, Mexico. He lives and works in Guadalajara, Mexico.
