Born Mexico City DF, 1976 Lives and works in Mexico City
Artemio is part of the generation of Mexican artists that came of age in the mid-90s and who proposed artistic alternatives in video, installation and performance to the rise of neo-Mexican art and painting of the 80s. His experimental multimedia work stems from the appropriation and reinterpretation of pop cultural elements as in his Rambo 2001, in which he edited out all the physical and verbal violence from the original movie
Through humor, cynicism and even shamelessness, Artemio questions contemporary subjects such as war and violence.
He studied several courses and workshops at the Centro de la Imagen and the National School of Fine Arts in Mexico City; the New School for Social Research and The Sculpture Center in New York. Artemio has individually shown at Pinta Art Fair, New York, the Queen Nails Annex, San Francisco; LAXART, Los Angeles; the Hayward Gallery, London; Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Museo de Arte Carillo Gil and La Panadería in Mexico City. He has participated in several group exhibitions in Mexico, Ecuador, Panamá, Cuba, Brasil, Spain, Korea, and the US among others. Artemio has been recipient of the Jovenes Creadores Grant in two occasions. He is founder and faculty member of SOMA, former director of La Panadería and founder of HCRH.
