Read about Mauricio Conteras Paredes

Graduated from the University of Toronto in Anthropology and Visual Arts, this young Guatemalan artist has dedicated himself to the production of artwork that captures imaginary architectural structures and the spaces that the human eye does not perceive. Although in the past Contreras has mentioned that he takes inspiration from memory, he has now understood that his inclinations have always been towards the future. These structures then are made up from flat planes of color, which are portrayed in an almost mechanical manner; this is something the artist ensures since he is attracted to the way machines can present images more perfectly than humans. He has also endeavored into new filed such as murals and installation and is constantly reinventing his work as his practice grows.
