Gabriel Sánchez Viveros is an architect from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. To date, he has completed 60 projects between architectural design, interior design and application of art in spaces. He worked for 15 years in Saudi Arabia, where he built and completed architectural and interior design proposals in palaces for various clients including the royal family. Although he's an architect by profession, it's impossible to classify him in a single area since he is creative by nature and that has led him to explore various artistic methods since he was a child. Currently and for some years, he has prioritized the development of his career as a visual artist. His work is manifested in several disciplines such as sculpture, art-object, painting, photography, engraving, among others; but what makes his work so particular is that the artist juxtaposes concepts and materials typical of architecture in his pieces. In the last 4 years, his artistic work has been shown individually and collectively in Mexico and abroad in more than 30 exhibitions, which include: The Shade of Silence in U Gallery, Beijing, China (2020), Flora's Soul in Galería Ixcateopan, Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico (2020), Synergy: From Manila to Acapulco in Zhou B Art Center, Chicago (2019), Flora's Soul in Galería Oscar Román, Mexico City (2019), Rojo: Historias Sobre Papel Amate in Museo de Culturas Populares, Mexico City (2018), Flora's Soul in Latin American Art Fair, San Diego, U.S.A. (2018), El Origen in Palacio de la Autonomía, Mexico City (2017), Del Boceto a La Vida in Palacio de la Autonomía, Mexico City (2017), Woven Heritage in A4 Gallery, Dubai, UAE (2017), ROT in Bad Hersfeld-Rotenburg, Germany (2017), Entre Líneas in Galería Ixcateopan, Acapulco, Mexico (2017), Islamic Art Revival Series in Dallas, Texas (2015 and 2014), Undress & Not, Barebrush in New York (2014). During 2019, several exhibitions were presented, including Flora's Soul, the collective exhibition of the Beijing International Art Biennale, among others nationally and internationally. Currently, Gabriel Sánchez Viveros is working on new projects and continues a long list of exhibitions.
