Born in Morelos, Mexico, Axel Iván Mendoza Duarte goes under a pseudonym "Ax Rococó". Interested in drawing from an early age, Ax Rococó expresses his desire for learning to draw scratching everything he finds in his path. Having studied the Graphic Design at the Faculty of Higher Studies Acatlán UNAM, he finds Mexican graphics to be extremely attractive to him. Nevertheless, Ax is deeply inspired by Baroque art, Art Nouveau and Impressionism. His work combines his love for simple shapes and finely defined color palettes with detailed elements and charming utterly dynamic characters. He manually adds shadings and nuances giving the final illustration a comic look. The recurring themes of Rococó’s artworks are freedom, peace and chaos. The artist ensures that a fascination for these topics is manifested in his own life.
A deep disinterest in your eye. You are drinking your bottle of whiskey, and me caressing my fibers and circuits by a bottle of oil. This lubricates my engine and keeps me alive. My mind yet collapses with ideas and data which makes me feel depressed. What does the future we approach look like? Give me another shot.
