One of the most proposing and freshest names in Riviera Maya street art, is
Senkoe, a Playa del Carmen based artist, who performs painting interventions in the urban context as part of interdisciplinary projects in favor of the recovery of public spaces. Senkoe studied pedagogy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, at the same time as he enrolled in graphic design courses and art workshops at the Academy of San Carlos.
The work of Senkoe opens from two sources: pre-Hispanic art and the world of dreams, reminding us that both come from a single source, pure creation. The state of enlightenment in which everything that is spoken, drawn or painted is a major work of art. In this way, his graph reproduces the delirium of Mexico's own textiles – its shapes and colors – and the memories of a dream world that is constantly fading.
Other sources of inspiration are found in botanical illustration, literature, comics, as well as caricatures, nature and the sea. From them, Senkoe creates anthropomorphic characters, creatures of the unconscious, animals that come to life. They fly, rest and travel along a monstrous and beautiful Mexican identity. These elements constitute what can be called a narrative graffiti that puebla the global anonymity that has permeated our streets. As a result, his work stimulates the imagination of the passer-by with a kind of animal reverie.
