Manolo Cocho is a Mexican artist who is internationally active and recognized. He lives and creates in a desert but his artworks are presented in major cities of the world. He dedicates himself to the contemplation of the Earth as the planet of our existence and daily life as well as the Universe as the existence on material and spiritual level. His position is well based on scientific knowledge but he doesn’t neglect the mythology of archetypes as well. Cocho works in various media including painting, sculpture, land art, performance, photography and video. He uses them accordingly to the content and the context. His departure is academic drawing and painting but he sublimates the classical media through conceptual thinking into a stabile form. His artwork has been described as post-contemporary because it is strongly attached to the contemporary context through his concern for ecology but still intended for eternity because of the use of archetypes.
