Jaime Velazquez Spanish, b. 1987

Identity, collective memory and new technologies intersect to form my visual narrative.

His work is a reflection of his context and his time. Immigration, questions of identity, globalisation, new technologies, collective history and memory are the themes that intersect in his visual narrative. Using the same capturing procedure used by technology, the virtual world and digital marketing, Velázquez takesthem out of context on to new and unknown dimensions.
