Armando Sebastian was born in Monterrey, Mexico. Not quite a decade ago, Sebastian decided to begin his career anew as an artist in Dallas, Texas, where he now resides.
His work can most closely identify with the genre of magical realism.
Sebastian’s child-like fascination with the folds of cloth, texture of insect wings, wallpaper stains, or color of bird feathers in an enigmatic way lead us to explores questions of identity and gender, Manga, ex-votos, folk art and 18th-century Art inform and inspire his work.
His paintings represent a fusion of religious iconography and magical realism.
