Hello, I’m Hugo, I’ve been working in the fields of visual arts and Animation for over fifteen years. I was born in 1978 in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. During the 80’s, from my perspective as a child, I witnessed the ideological struggle from the last chapter of the cold war. I had a happy childhood but I have to admit that I was worried about the threat of the “end of the world” by an atomic bomb.  When I was 20 years old I moved to Costa Rica to study Economics but I ended up studying Arts and Visual Communication. The comics I used to do as a kid about superheroes had a big influence in this decision. Then I worked as a freelance artist in the fields of painting, illustration, videoart and documentary film. Since 2005 I’m living and working in Solothurn, Switzerland, where I made a Bachelor in Media Art at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern (FHNW).  In 2011 I received a Master’s degree in Design and Animage at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

I consider myself a politically awakened person. I’m passionate about visual communication, art, history, anthropology and political economy. Through my work I want to reflect about political, socioeconomic and ecological themes that capture my attention and passion. Either with a didactic or an artistic approach, I want to share insights, inform, open discussions or just give my point of view.
