Rafael Morales Cendejas. Navigations


Rafael Morales Cendejas works and lives in Mexico, his artistic process is deeply influenced by the recognition of new literary forms, his projects linked through the platform of self-publishing, a concept that derives from do it yourself culture, used by subcultures with a lot to express but with low visibility and resources. His publications are interested in covering the individual and collaborative perspective, he explores print techniques and distribution media to generate audiences through cultural strategies and suggest the necessary conditions for dialogue between authors, readers and objects. His experiments in photography, illustration, performance, drawing and video, are transformed and structured into a methodology of editorial design to take the book art form, with the possibility of being studied as an object. Rafael’s works recover the gesture of touch, interactivity and intertextuality, he is under constant evolution, as well as the process of its production.
