Chris Mendoza

Born in Nicaragua and raised in New York City, Chris Mendoza draws from both cultures in his dazzlingly precise and detailed abstract works. Working primarily in ink, paint and mixed media (deconstructed barcodes and international postal labels tagged with graffiti), he constructs entire worlds and self-contained systems of varying degrees of complexity.
The son of an architect, Mendoza is gripped by the mechanics of urban life: the architecture of infrastructure; the interactions between humanity and between humanity and machines; the rhythm of rituals; and the intricacies of written language. Mendoza has studied Mayan, Central and Native American civilizations and cultures, and he has pored over their scripts, glyphs and calligraphies. Those elements lie at the heart of his imagery, through which he displays exacting precision that is equally remarkable for its impulse and intuition.
