The Eastern inspired imagery of Jose Mertz

The works of Miami based artist and designer Jose Mertz propose an experimental journey with inspirations, symbols and themes coming from ancient civilizations and their teachings, science fiction, Eastern philosophy, dreams, myth and the supernatural, expressing his vision about the human condition.

The artist takes us to the deepest realms of the mind, reveals the complexity of human emotions, deconstructs and reconstructs his fluid characters and opens the door to new dimensions and endless possibilities of perceiving and interacting with our inner and surrounding reality.
