My name is Antonio José Vallejo, born in Cádiz in 1987 and I completed my Undergraduate in Fine Art in Granada and continued to do a Masters in Seville. Currently, I live in Galway
My work tries to approach the concept of marginal miniorities from a subjeticve perspective. All of my work investigates the image of the body in favor of a diversified context, which is defined by the idea as the systematic discrimination based on the people’s usefulness, utility and effectiveness. In this case, homosexuality. Around this idea, my portraits of the body are related as a way of exploration of the human identity to interpreting the people’s own experience.
I am interested in exploring a personal esthetic route, "the vital aim is trusted upon each one’s diligence. Each person has a reference as of themselves" says Lyotard, from the need of expressing the subjectivity existing in each individual, in relation to this context.
