Héctor Omar Solís is a mixed media artist who approaches art in a democratic manner. He combines the punk do-it-yourself aesthetics with Mexican crafts practices and blends in elements of Rococo ornamentation to create mostly paper-based works that are infused with a queer sensibility.
Héctor alters mass media images by removing most visible signs of advertisement to obliterate the original commercial context of the image or photograph to then imbue it with a new sense of freedom, playfulness and sensuality. Héctor reworks the surfaces of the images to create new narratives about sexual desires and gender expressions, the construction of masculinity, social justice, and the role of the imagination as transformative powers in building a different future.
Héctor is currently pursuing degrees in Art History/Studio Art and Psychology at San Francisco State University.
