I was just checking out Anno Domini‘s website last night and came across some really cool work from Saner/Edgar Flores, who just so happens to currently have a solo show at the gallery.
Saner (b. 1981) is a visual artist, illustrator and muralist that discovered his love for graffiti at an early age which ultimately led him to pursue a career in graphic design. The work of Edgar Flores (aka Saner) uses everyday life and their roots to create magic beings with popular pre-hispanic reminiscences beside images influenced by the aesthetics of Mexican masks.
confesiones de una mascara is Saner’s debut solo exhibition.
Exhibit on view thru April 18, 2009 A.D.
I haven’t been able to find any of Saner’s street work online (besides work he’s done outside of Anno Domini), but I’m told he does/did work on the street. Either way, his work is really impressive and something pretty different. A few pieces remind me of Os Gêmeos, but only enough to make me think he’s talented, not enough to be annoying.
For more from Saner’s show at Anno Domini, go here.
