Additional Info:Byron Gálvez learned from teachers such as Antonio Rodríguez Luna, Francisco Moreno Capdevila, Luis Nishizawa, Santos Balmori, and Antonio Rampirez. In his early work, he was more inclined towards abstract expressionism, strongly influenced by the colors used by Rufino Tamayo and Vasili Kandinsky, as well as compositions by Santos Balmori and Wifredo Lam. In his work, the use of plastic stands out, as does his unusual capacity to correctly manage volumes and cool colors, which help stimulate the viewer’s imagination.
“In his work, one can observe a celebration of light. Figures dance and live in a constant celebration, sometimes erotic, sometimes innocent. His figures, colors, textures, and compositions stimulate the imagination, and delight the spirit.” Eva Beleglovsky.
Throughout his life, he presented more than 60 individual exhibits in the USA and Latin America, as well as participating in various collective exhibits. His work can currently be found in private collections in Mexico and abroad.
