In this constant search for techniques and materials, in this accumulation of collective knowledge is where my mark-making begins to tell stories and where I consider myself free.

About the Artist

Portrait of artist Rocca Luis César.

Rocca Luis César (b. 1986) is a Guadalajara, Mexico-based artist and creative director. Rocca's work explores personal narrative and universal emotions through playful abstractions of the figure, animals, fruit, and planetary bodies. Rocca's work has been exhibited in major cities such as Paris, Melbourne, and Barcelona. Recent exhibitions include Museo Tamayo in Mexico City and Faena Forum in Miami. In 2021, Rocca had his first solo exhibition: Todos los caminos son circuitos (All Paths Turn into Circuits) at Fábrica Morelos in Guadalajara, and in 2023 he mounted his first solo show outside of Mexico at Sin Título Gallery in San Francisco.
