In 1980, I founded The Primimodernismo (El Primimodernismo ), as a new trend in contemporary art. This trend manifests an eclectic character and holisticallly expresses the historical origin of the visual arts and its subsequent development in its vast trajectory to the present day.

This trend of visual arts is the result of meticulous research that supports this innovation. Its profound and infinite expression, as subjective, tangible and aesthetic, works by means of bi-dimensional and tri-dimensional images, and specifically stimulates the freedom of human sentiment. It combines work, artist, and spectator, inducing the viewer into the mysterious and deep space of the visual arts.

The main characteristics of The Primimodernismo are manifested in an ostensible way because it defines a significant difference from other art trends that have emerged over time. Similarly, this trend is the synthesis of the visual arts from their origins, including Primitive, Classical, and Pre-Columbian, as they progress to Modernist and contemporary art. The Primimodernismo conveys all trends in a single scenario and expression, and therefore differs from all other trends by its unique character which draws human sentiment from the core of the subjectivism and Infinitude of the human mind. Most of my art shows human figures with deformed faces or bodies, but also shows the purity of classicism combined with features of modern art.

The Primimodernismo has been exhibited widely throughout the world and has brought many citations, awards, and recognitions. One of these was the presentation of The Primimodernismo before the United Nations in New York, NY some years ago, which brought enthusiastic comments from the ambassadors of many countries who recognized the importance of this new trend and how it symbolizes the fine and pure representation of the Human Values that need to be preserved.

Relevant features of the Primimodernismo.

• Restitution of the origin of visual arts, represented in pre-Columbian expressions and later primitive manifestations.
• The fusion of primitive expressions with the main trends in art to be presented in a single expression.
• The fusion of pragmatism and the hypothesis of Human Values extracted and condensed from their origins to the present, both in its tangible, subjective and aesthetic content. This is the reason that The Primimodernismo is differentiated from other historical trends in art and from contemporary art.


1. To introduce the Primimodernismo into new generations which represent the links between the origin of visual art and the new contemporary world.
2. To restore Human Values as the fundamental base of the individual within human society without the discrimination of race, nationality, politics, religion, or social class, as among other factors.
3. To restore the peace and social coexistence of the individual in the present, and for future generations.
4. To induce teachers, artists and the general public to preserve interest in Art research based on the Primimodernismo art trend.

This is the transcendental proposal that I wish to disseminate at national and international levels, so that its invaluable content will be used as a bridge of connection between the past and the present. For this reason, I invite all government agencies, directors of museums, galleries, cultural entities, artists and teachers, among others at national and international levels, to participate, so that together we can unite our dignified efforts in The Primimodernismo, and induce the general public to endure the Intrinsic Values of human society in order to achieve a positive and enhanced social coexistence.
