About the work

This is a portrait of the artist wearing a mask.

About the artist:

Born 1992 Vercruz, Héctor Jiménez Castillo lives and works in Guadalajara, Mexico. Graduated from BFA, Escuela de Artes de la Secretaría de Cultura Jalisco, Jalisco (2014).

Through his work Castillo investigates the production of images that appeal to the unconscious, mainly exploring different media: choreography, writing, drawing and sculpture. He is interested in artistic practice as a tool to get to know places, people and generate extra-cotidian experiences. With a particular interest in the performing arts, he has worked and collaborated on dance and theatre projects. He is co-founder and active member of Arrogante Albino artist lab, Arrogante's work could be considered a media collage that has the body as its center of investigation. 

Selected solo exhibitions include Quis este deus quem adoras? (¿Cuál es el dios al que adoras?), Espacio Obra negra, Guanajuato (2018); You’re here and it’s amazing, Arrogante Albino’s commissioned performance for I SEE YOU, Humberto Moro & Ben Tollefson, SCAD Museum of art, Savannah (2018); Concierto para dos pies izquierdos, Laboratorio Artes Variedades, Guadalajara (2018); La domesticación de los reinos (plantae) para Unmetrocuadrado, Hotel Demetria, Guadalajara (2018); Hubo dos momentos de fugaz conciencia mientras cruzábamos el río, Guadalajara90210, Guadalajara (2017); and Artista holgazán, ingenuo y falto de pericia, Galería Juan Soriano, Guadalajara (2017).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
