Sergio Mojica was born in El Salvador and grew up in New York City. A self taught artist and musician he believes that music and art influence each other. Some of the musicians who have shaped his art have been Carlos Santana and Thelonious Monk to name a few. He sees his art as a marriage between the old folklore of Latin America and the European influnces such as Surrealism, Abstraction, as well as Expressionism. It is somewhere between these vast universes that Sergio exists while trying to defy category. He says, "I still refer to some of these art movements as "cool" since their age to me is irrelevant. These styles were cool then and they will forever be "cool" to me. I am influenced by countless artists musically and artistically, even by writers such as Rod Serling or subversive poets like Roque Dalton. My inspiration comes from every day people and life."
