BENITO RANGEL DE MARIA
Through the use of constructed and deconstructed media, my work incorporates layers of visual elements that create new narratives. My practice utilizes a combination of mixed media techniques including painting, drawing, collage, and printmaking. The resulting tapestry of work reveals the woven nature of my existence and addresses subjects I find noteworthy.
I’m incredibly thrilled to have been selected to create a commissioned artwork for the soon to open Chase Center – future home of the Golden State Warrior’s in San Francisco. Alongside 23 other artists selected by Sports And The Arts for the Chase Center Art Program (https://www.chasecenter.com/news/4X10wFaU1fy7ZdTE84wbds), the collection will be anchored by artwork by international artist Olafur Eliasson.

I am so pleased to be debut “Allegory 2” at San Francisco @artmarketproductions April 25-28th with @juliezenergallery, Booth #528. “Allegory 2” is part of a series of works on paper that invoke tapestries crossing into the sphere of allegorical poetry. These works invite the viewer to see beyond the limitations of the physical.
