A figurative artist known for his dark, gothic, and grotesque imagery, Mejias' work delves deep into the human psyche, portraying torment and inner turmoil through surreal and unsettling scenes.

His painting is deeply personal and introspective. Reflecting on his process, Mejias explains, “My artistic process is very passionate; art saved my life and is the most important means of communication I have."

This profound connection to his craft reveals a raw and honest portrayal of his inner world. His artworks, stemming from the profound impact of his brother's early passing, delve into the intricate layers of the human psyche, vividly portraying the turmoil of the soul.

Combining cubist influences, bold brushstrokes, and earthy colour palettes, he transports viewers from Costa Rica’s beautiful vistas to the intimate moments of everyday life, and beyond.

This exhibition offers a unique look at how Gonzalez's artistic vision extends beyond the canvas into music, providing a comprehensive experience of his creativity.
