"The artist is a reflection of daily life. I want to be a chronicle of my time"

Artist Israel Zzepda, a native of Guadalajara, Jalisco, has been painting for more than 20 years and has recently expanded his artistic energy to include sculpture, experimental photography and drawing. Zzepda was involved in art workshops during his childhood and after high school he joined a school of visual arts in Guadalajara where he developed a personal style that he defines into the symbolism. His work penetrates into the religious, spiritual, sexual and existential realms, reflecting over the truth and questioning established thinking. "The artist is a reflection of daily life. I want to be a chronicle of my time," says Zzepda who seeks to be honest and reflect his own unique style in all of his work. Israel Zzepda is represented locally by Galleria Dante.
