Ernesto Cabral de Luna

 

Ernesto is a Mexican-Canadian photo based artist whose work centres around the analog & digital intrusion of mixed media.

His collage work aims to analyze and deconstruct mass produced images of Western popular culture found within advertising, magazine articles and ethnographic works of 20th century publications.

His digital stop-motion like animations allow for him to showcase his work progress by means of alternating between the various compositional possibilities that exist within the same idea.

His latest series (A Falta) de Pan, Tortillas is a retrospective and decolonizing analysis of his family’s story as immigrants through the manipulation of ID cards and passport photos.

Ernesto is a part of the Punk Circus and Apples Gone Bad collectives and is currently finishing his BFA in Photography at OCAD University in Toronto.
