About

About The Artist, Raul Mejia

Born in Mexico City, one of three siblings, Raul was only 8 months old when his mother carried him to the United States. As recalled by his mother, he was staring at the stars throughout the night’s journey, and his fascination for the universe continues as revealed in the most recent Celestial Beings exhibit. Coexisting between American and Mexican culture, Raul has remained fluid. Beginning roots as an artist with street art he navigated around the art scene to ultimately create the well-recognized, distinctive, simple lines yet complex subjects with a keen sense of design always keeps it refreshing. Raul’s art is non-traditional yet includes elements of his hybrid Mexican and American culture. Innately capturing metaphorical and spiritual elements captivate curiosity, distilling beauty and provoking thought. A reminder of life, death and all the beauty that exists in-between in the here and now.

Raul is currently expanding to include Graphic Design, murals, screen printing and stepping into a Curator role.

And all the beauty that exists in between.
