Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene, SEFT-1 under the stars of Taviche

Iván Puig Domene was born in 1977 in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. He spent his first years between the streets of Guadalajara, the tropical jungle of Comala and the car junks of Tijuana, circumstances that where important for his later art production. He did studies in electronics in Guadalajara and Fine Arts in Guanajuato.

The techniques that Puig uses are not what determines his work since he jumps from one to another. The line that connects it all is the critical perspective and the humour present in his observations of the social environment. Indignation has been an important trigger for the subjects he approaches, and one of his concerns is the time consuming collateral activity related to the professionalisation of art, such as writing biographies in third person. For 7 years he has been working on the project SEFT-1 with his brother Andrés Padilla Domene. His award winning work has been shown in Mexico and abroad.
