Damián Siqueiros is a Montreal based image maker, a photographer, not the kind that reflects reality, but the kind that imagines one to transform it into something tangible, most often through multidisciplinary work, may this be art direction, stage design, make-up or styling.
As an artist, he is an avid defender of gender equality and he works for the acceptance of diversity as key elements to better our world. He does it ever so gently through an aesthetic that draws from the great masters of painting, such as Caravaggio, Rembrandt and JW Waterhouse. With his work, he seeks to provoke emotions, change conversations and respectful confrontation. His work has earned him great opportunities of being exhibited in museums and galleries throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. It has also earned him the opportunity to work with amazing artists who he admires, such as choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Canadian dance icon Margie Gillis.
As a commercial photographer, he helps clients find their visual voice and express themselves through compelling imagery that makes long lasting impressions. That not only improves their sales but inspires their public. Such is the case of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Vogue Mexico, Elle Mexico and Porrua bookstore.
Damián is a beauty seeker, not the shallow version of it, but the one that often hides from the eyes, the one that embraces and enhances the transformative power of art. He is a seeker of beauty because, as Dostoyevsky said "beauty will save the world" and he plans to do it one image at a time.
