Mejia’s art is non-traditional and flavored with a pop-culture flare which elevates story and history. Mejia began his artistic journey as a street artist where he brought his Mexican roots into the Sacramento art scene and ultimately created a well-recognized, distinctive, colorful style.
Raul Mejia is one of three siblings born in Mexico City and was 8 months old when his mother carried him to the United States. Today he is a proud citizen, who coexists between American and Mexican culture.
Wounded Deer is a solo gallery show of Mejia’s artwork inspired by the life of Frida Khalo and the influence she has had on his personal growth. Innate metaphorical and spiritual elements captivate curiosity, distill beauty and provoke thought in this exhibit showcasing a reminder of life, death and all the beauty that exists in-between in the here and now.
Mejia is an environmental artist, with a keen message to create beautiful artwork without adding to the ever-growing problem of pollution and production waste. Mejia’s art is mostly
painted on items that would have been discarded like recycled wood panel boards, and his canvases utilize frames built from repurposed wood and the aethstetic is beautiful.
Art lovers and collectors are invited to the gallery exhibit. The gallery space is well ventilated with floor to ceiling accordion french doors that open to the patio, creating an indoor/outdoor setting.
