Mambo lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
Mambo was born in Chile in 1969, from a French father and a Hungarian mother.
He grew up in Latin America and started his artist career in Paris.
Mambo has established his own visual vocabulary : he is a polyglot artist, capable to pick what he needs on his languages palette to express his feelings in the moment. His different artworks series go from abstract graphic interplays of lines and spontaneous designs, to action painting as well as minimal and caricatural portraits using his signature red-orange color, thus creating an expressive graphic universe, full of underlying meanings, combining observation, ambiguity and humour.
The core theme is humanity, the inspiration is our brain, our mental processes, sensations, emotions, memories, inner feelings and mechanical reactions. Human behaviors become colorful ideograms, our environment becomes a dictionary, where he picks symbols to write his own prose : visual enigmas.
Mambo’s discourse is not imposed upon us, it intrigues us and leads us to memorize our own reflections.
