Dionisio Ceballos

Dionisio Ceballos (b. 1972, México City) is a multidisciplinary artist known for his murals, and luminous, colorful abstract work. Ceballos has discovered a prolific language in the constant exploration to extract the mystical, the natural accidents – the substantial. The studies of light, the translucency and the ludic atmospheres are characteristics of his work. His paintings become a translation of the chaotic towards the graceful – from the unpredictable to the essential.
