The work of Héctor Madera arises from personal experiences and the observation of everyday situations in which the day-to-day struggle is reflected. Embarrassing situations, unfortunate circumstances and insignificant achievements are the inspiration of his artistic practice. Through different media ranging from collage, neon sculptures and large-scale paintings, Madera evokes emotional states that range from sadness and frustration, to ecstasy and joy. He has an MFA from Brooklyn College (2011).
