Artist Statement

I went to sleep and saw a horse in my dream. The horse wasn't a wild one, it was a good horse and we went on a walk. At the end of our walk the horse touched my head with this head and then turned around and walked away slowly into I couldn't see him anymore. The next morning I was reading the paper and there was my horse, only a bit different. Stronger legs, bigger build, gentle but strong. I put my coffee down and went on with my day only to keep seeing my horse everywhere I turned. It was an omen and it was a good one because it represents freedom, power and journey. So this painting represents all of those three.

Artist Biography

Mario Humberto Kazaz is a Mexican born modernist pop-artist. His art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. He strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Kazaz was born in 1984, in Monterrey, Mexico. He grew up in Texas and self-taught art that was later blended into a style that he developed from a graffiti movement he joined at an early age. He currently works from his studio in the Montrose area, a major art district in the city of Houston. Currently he works in large scale paintings that are inspired by the neo-culture of this new interconnected world of today.
