COVA aims to encompass a story and generate emotion through his art. His work is a mixture of modern and abstract art with a touch of surrealism emphasizing Mexican mythology, traditions and folklore. He uses the elements of earth and garners inspiration from the beautiful city of Oaxaca, Mexico. It had a great influence on his style and use of color. He has always admired the country’s pre-Hispanic and artisan design. It could be said that he is an urban neo-Mexicanism artist with mixed technique. Having previously worked as an architect allowed him to develop and grow his creative process and elevate his creative design.
