Montes Arte Mexicanowww.ArtPal.com/montesaggi
I’m Jose Luis Montes, usually know as Montes or Montes Aggi, I started painting at age 12, after becoming fascinated with the color palette of a painter I found in the streets of my town, Cholula, from that moment I knew that painting was what I really wanted to do and so I started to learn on my own.
Although I have never been to an academy of Fine Arts I received master classes from Eduardo Villanueva, one of the many disciples of Diego Rivera, from 1989 to 1992, in the study he had in the Barrio del Artista, Puebla, Mexico, he always said you’ll be learning painting just painting!
I like brilliant colors, most of time at last, also the flowing lines are one of my deepest characteristic, know many techniques and I like to work and develop them, because each one allows me to do different jobs and I can experience new perspectives.
The work you can see here is my own work, I mean, I usually do custom paint, but in here you see what I create by myself, it’s not difficult for me, I need to paint as other needs to breath, my creative process depends on what I’m working about, if it’s oil or another well-known technique it’s usually a flow work, if I’m experimenting with techniques or new surfaces is very different, if you are interesting about know any process in the pictures please let me know, I can explain you detailed how it was, love talk about that!
