The 1xRun online gallery has presented the artist Rorro Berjano with a short interview that gives us a deeper introduction into his work. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this Mexican born, Seville based artist’s work, this is an excellent opportunity to get to know the genius from which these endearing ceramics emerge. These tributes to urban cultural icons in a classical format are achieved through an instinctive process.
“Works were created in a rather anarchic way, I don’t start and finish works in one go, I work in an erraic manner, sometimes in groups.“
In each piece you can perceive the spontaneous nature of its manufacture that is free of sketching and prior planning. This characteristic in some of his works gives them a slightly naive yet elaborately detailed aesthetic.
“My first artistic references came from the Abstract Expressionist, American artists William De Kooning, Cy Twombly, Jason Pollock, etc. and Europeans like the Cobra group or Grupo Spur. I also liked tribal art from a young age, especially African art.“
A few of Rorro’s ceramic works are available for purchase through his web shop.
