Biography

Born in 1978 in Mexico City, and at only 16 years he began his career as a freelance illustrator for various local publishers. That's where he met the artist Victor Hernandez, with who he colaborate in his studio and introduced to formal arts and academic human figure drawing. At 19 he moved to the state of taking courses at the University of Veracruz where he discovered the diversity of classical art techniques taking back to Mexico City to further on in the workshop techniques and materials of Maestro Luis Nishizawa. This is where he learn the basics of a visual language that would later characterize.
In 2003 he joined the School of Artistic Initiation of the National Institute of Fine Arts, place that elaborates on the various non tradicioinales then taking advantage of artistic experimentation with the same syntax to enrich his work. Graduated with a major in painting, Calderon seeks thereafter to extend its range of technical possibilities pursuing various specialty shops always looking for a more clear and forceful language with which to express their best work to the viewer. So, Hajime Sorallama, Cheng-Khee Chee, Alexey Antonov and Javier Aviles, are some of the people I have learned and been influenced.
The artist has participated in numerous exhibitions in Mexico and in parts of Europe, his work is in private collections in USA, Spain, Mexico and South America, the critical points as one of the most promising artists of his generation.
