Carlos Amorales studied at the Rietveld Academie and Rijksakademie in Holland in the 1990s. He is famous for his choreographed performances under the name Amorales vs. Amorales, staging masked Mexican wrestlers in museums and galleries worldwide. He has built up a Liquid Archive, a digital imagery database, which encompasses personal, political and popular sources. He transforms this iconographic store into his signature graphic style which then transfers into his practice which involves paintings, drawings and installations, video animations and performances. He works with motion graphic designers, media researchers, and musicians to a certain contemporary collective unconscious based on media-driven codes of perception and spectacle. Amorales is versed in the most cutting-edge communications strategies, in the power of strong, bold, catchy signs and signals and near hypnotic perceptual experiences. He develops the full potential of the digital age and decries copyright laws by highlighting the creative opportunities available today.
Carlos Amorales represented the Netherlands at the 2003 Venice Biennale.
Carlos Amorales was born Mexico in 1970. He lives and works in Mexico City.
