Allan Villavicencio

Allan Villavicencio was born in Mexico City in 1987. Lives and works in Mexico.

The pictorial exercise of Allan Villavicencio arises from the chance encounter with the accident, regardless of an unstable order, more open to both certainty and failure. Therefore, the unfinished, the fractured, and the worn-down become remarkable qualities in his paintings, superimposed on conventions and traditions. Only in this way can it be understood that with Villavicencio painting is strictly a “practice”, that is, a way of creating, an intuition and a strategy.
Allan Villavicencio is a Mexican artist who currently lives and works in Mexico City. He received his Bachelor’s of Visual Arts from the National School of Plastic Arts at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) in 2010.
