Gabo’s works are filled with social commentary, color, politics, emotions and vibrancy all layered into a beautiful painting – often large in size. The passion in the eyes of the artist demonstrates his tie to the art he creates.
All his pieces revolve around what the artist sees in his life – or saw in the past growing up visiting Mexico City.
Social criticism reflects in his work; the work he does gives him a voice. Understanding Gabo’s work requires the admirer to know a bit of the artist’s past. Gabo has worked with detainees and children, and he has seen the neglect of children in society.
Behind every piece of his artwork is a voice waiting to scream.
Every piece of art, no matter how childlike in appearance, aims to be a pictorial representation of a discipline that exists in a world of children that should be surrounded by innocence rather than fear and nightmares of abuse.
