Bayrol Jiménez (b. 1984 in Oaxaca, Mexico) lives and works in Oaxaca. He studied at the National School of Painting, Sculpture and Engraving, La Esmeralda, Mexico City, Mexico and at the Villa Arson National Superior School of Art in Nice, France. Jiménez’s works assume a wide variety of forms (drawing, painting, sculpture, performance), yet he remains committed to a form of edgy ink drawing that is reminiscent of comic-strip panels, the vernacular Mexican culture of sign painters and vaqueros books. Executing his drawings on a variety of papers with materials such as bold pen and ink to watercolor, gouache and acrylic (sometimes on large loose sheets of paper directly pinned on the wall, other times directly executed on the wall itself), he constantly explores the formal possibilities of framing on variable sizes to juxtapose and simultaneously create disparate assembled groups of pen and ink illustrations.
