OBJECT SHOWROOM TIJUANA

Elsoldelrac is an uncompromising contemporary artist from Tijuana that expands the possibilities of 2D and 3D work. His recent display at Object Showroom in Tijuana was an eye opening experience for our team as we learned that Tijuana is above San Diego in terms of artists pushing the boundaries. There is art everywhere in Tijuana from the painted zebra murals to the giant butterfly graffiti work. Tijuana is quickly becoming a hot bed for contemporary artists and this is just one report of many that we will be reviewing as well as the overall growth of the city.
Elsoldelrac displayed a bungee cord-type work that is a large knotty material that can serve as a bed in those times when you don't have anything to sleep on, just take the piece down from the ceiling and chill. I really loved the concept of the work. From pictures that Elsoldelrac showed me, the piece was much larger, like a long anaconda snake. He chopped the size down for this special exhibit.
The other works incorporated loose materials draped over the canvas, metal grids that fuse with the painting to make a complete contemporary conclusion. It was quite stunning set against the pitch black walls of the gallery. I am not usually a fan of painted walls, not that I am a traditionalist but when work is as complex as this I usually prefer white walls. But here it worked and Elsoldelrac pulled it off with flying colors, no pun intended.
