Born in Jalisco, Mexico, Mauricio Zúñiga moved to Chicago at the age of 13. Mo, as his friends call him, is a combination of dreams and Mexican charm. Creative from a young age and with a great eye for the different and the beautiful, Zúñiga began curating galleries in different parts of the US. In his works he uses construction materials, such as the plaster of the walls, the varnish and the acrylics of domestic paint, impregnating his pieces with both a subjective symbolism and a forceful aesthetic.

His work combines two styles of painting: cubism and surrealism. Most of his works, which have received international recognition, are richly textured. She wants people not only to experience her visually, but also – as counterintuitive as it may seem – to touch her paintings.

For 15 years, Mo has volunteered with the Kansas City Art Council to help them identify new talent for their Now Show program. He has also curated art exhibits during the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Fiesta Kansas City. His work as a volunteer has allowed him to meet different and talented people. Along the way, he found places to exhibit his own art, including The Late Show, Brandon Jacob, and the Grand Gallery. In 2015 he received the ArtsKC Virtuoso award and in 2021 he received recognition as a featured artist in the second day of artists abroad by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Mexico.
