From the book Rivington School or Wat by Amr G. Shaker:
'“I’d rather keep my hands dirty and my art clean.” These are the words of David Mora, a Mexican artist who believes in the public function of art. It is this need for communication that Mora puts to use in his canvases as well as on the fences that he paints on. In them, Mora often illustrates sceneries of everyday life which are close to the people and which –as he says- are addressed to the people.
The interesting feature in Mora’s work, however, lies in the form of his paintings and not merely in their subject matter. In fact, his colorful sceneries often take shape with the viewer taking perspective. At this point, one can only wonder if this subtlety –often a trademark of his work- serves to emphasize the “function” of his art or whether it represents a new approach to abstraction. Perhaps it is even both!
For David Mora’s following, time will certainly prove to be an interesting surprise…'
