Xavier Yarto’s, a different approach to Contemporary Art

The Mexican culture within the modern context of art.

Xavier Yarto was born in 1972 in Coyoacan, a delegation south of Mexico City. He studied architecture at the Mexican Institute of Technological Studies (IMET) in Mexico City, between 1995 and 1997. The artist, self-taught, seeks to move beyond abstract art, combining this technique with a high-relief work of pre-Hispanic culture and the pre-Columbian enigmatic world, with a new series of colors that the artist creates to highlight the meaning of every icon used in his work. After having exhibited in several important places in Mexico, his work has been brought to Europe: Sweden, the Netherlands, Spain, England, Austria, France, Italy and then the United States. The artist is a member of the Mexican Society of Authors Arts; of the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers based in Paris, France; of the Brazilian Association of Authors, Direitos Visuais; of the Visual Artist Company of Argentina. Among the many interviews: in 2015 at Pebeo International Magazine France, at Kunst Magazine Austria. In 2014 at the Hola Californie TV show; to the magazine Marbella in Spain; in Over de Kunst Netherlands. In 2009 he took part in the Channel 62 show in Los Angeles.
A Mexican painter who has managed to put in purely abstract work a very unique through the creation of particular colors that give great strength and impact to your work touch.

For his unmistakable style, Xavier uses brushes that allow him to obtain the maximum performance in oil painting with strong and evident material traces; the Emerald synthetic, one of the most elastic, thanks to its fibers with a marked conicity and rigid body structure, allows to recreate a brushstroke of very strong impact. Of similar use are the Mongoose and Gold synthetic, which guarantee maximum fluidity while remaining always compact and closed inwards. Yarto is also a lover of Extra bristle: the classic tool for styles characterized by rapid, intense and material brushstrokes with dense colors.
The author seeks to bring a point beyond abstract art by combining this technique with a job in high relief of pre-Hispanic culture, which he turned in its theme transforms in concept and reinforced with a new set of colors that the artist creates otherwise to highlight the meaning of each icon used in his work.
After presenting several important and renowned places in Mexico,
takes his work to countries like Sweden, the Netherlands , Spain, England, Austria, France, Italy and the USA.


No doubt his work hits again, because it not only offers the viewer the quality of an abstract work but takes the enigmatic world of pre-Columbian art. A job as its author calls it, ” a recreation of the Hispanic culture with a modern language.”
