Pablo Castañeda is a Mexican contemporary border artist. His work is a vivid patchwork of all that is beautiful and devastating about life on the U.S. – Mexico border. Influenced by classic, modern and contemporary art, Castañeda's unique style embraces reality and simulation, the abstract and the figurative; a jigsaw accident in a wide-eyed territory. He began to experiment and work with different techniques and experimental disciplines as a graphic design student, delving into new artistic tendencies. Since childhood, Pablo developed a hearing impairment that caused him to go deaf, further strengthening his passion for art, dedicating himself to painting and improving in his profession daily. Castañeda has participated in numerous solo and collective exhibitions in Mexico and the United States.
