Ernesto Muñiz - International Collage Artist

Mexican collage artist and award winning photographer

Ernesto Muñiz creates striking collages using

found materials and images cut from magazines.

His finely composed artworks take on a life of their

own having the power to communicate complex ideas

and tackle challenging subjects. Intended to stimulate alternative ways of thinking, often with a twist of humour,

his unique compositions provide a visual feast of colour and imagery that entertains and takes viewers on a symbol filled journey of discovery.

Ernesto Muñiz is one of fifteen young artists selected

from 5,000 applicants from six Latin American countries to be exhibit in the "Weight and Lightness" exhibition organised by the Instituto Cervantes as part of PhotoEspaña2011.

His collages were reproduced as the official

exhibition posters, used as the cover picture for the

exhibition catalogue and appeared enlarged in the exhibition opened by H.R.H. Queen Sophia of Spain on 2nd June 2011.

This solo exhibition marks a return to Liverpool for the artist who last exhibited at the Corke Art Gallery in 2010 aspart of the Independents Biennial ‘Outsiders In’ exhibition which included work by Banksy and other internationalstreet artists.

His collection of new work 'Unholy Heart' combines all the big themes of love, religion, sex, violence, revolution, rock & roll as well as irony and just a little bit of Liverpool for good measure. This work has been created during his eleven day residency at the Corke Art Gallery which is delighted to be showing his work again but this time in his own solo show.

The show includes 9 new collages and 3 collage installations.
