Jorge Dos Diablos


Jorge (Dos Diablos) born in Guadalajara Mexico (1982). He start has a editorial illustrator, working for several Mexican newspapers and magazines. His collaborations goes from poster designs, music album covers and book design.


The fine art career begin as a result of the restlessness of the inner emotions an social conflicts. Giving a critical vision in each work, which becomes the monster that we each carry every day.


The work of 'Dos Diablos' transgresses and delights the viewer, leaving them no option to look ahead and contemplate themselves. Jorge work and live between Guadalajara and Oceanside California.






KUNST is an artist that seeks to manifest the grandiose. To center the phenomenological. To incorporate the surreal. KUNST orients their performances to resemble the feeling of remembering a terrible dream; to making their audience uncomfortable; to performing in its most hyperbolic the abject decadent queer lost in their fantasy lifeworld and entirely unrelenting in returning to any solid reference point.
