Leonardo Guerra

Leonardo Guerra is an undisciplined artist, landscapist, translator, and interpreter. He holds a degree in Physics from the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana. Additionally, he studied Art at the Faculty of Arts and Design at UNAM, where he specialized in painting, art, and environment.

In his artistic practice, he explores the role of artistic thought and its manifestations in current transdisciplinary phenomenology. Within his practice, we find painting, drawing, sculpture, video, lab-art, performance, installation, bioart, and public art. Through his work, he is interested in exploring the sensitive contributions of art, such as empathetic curiosity, creativity, self-taught learning, and conscious irrational instinct. He proposes an axis of research that he calls ecological deanthropocentralization, through which he seeks to reflect on the current relationship between humans and their environment; questioning how the concept of ecology is understood and the social, political, moral, and economic reasons that influence the current human/nature relationship.

During his studies, he was part of the October School 2018 residency at Shiv Nadar University, New Delhi, India, organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art Research (IFCAR), at Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (ZhdK), where he presented the project Nature/Human. Within this residency, the QuestiionsForArtists (QFA) collective was formed, with which he presented in Zurich, Switzerland, during LEARN, School of Commons 2019, at ZhdK.

In 2022, he had a solo exhibition at Glitteriana Art Factory, titled "Pieldeserpiente." The following year, he exhibited individually at Hashtag Gallery with the exhibition "Nature/Human: Indisciplina". In addition to these, he has multiple collective exhibitions in important cities and cultural venues in the country. Among these, highlights include the Archivo Biocultural Vivo Exhibition by the Cocina Colaboratorio collective, at the Luis Nishisawa gallery of the FAD, UNAM, in 2022, his participation in the FAMA Monterrey Art Fair in 2023, and his entry into the Lumen Art Biennial 2023, where he participated with a painting titled "Xochimilco IV".
