The artworks of Jose Davila is complicated in its simplicity. The skeletal structures are "fueled by the interest in the relation between place and fiction, space and temporality under architecture," as written in his biography, and it is this influence that makes them more than they are. Stretching beyond the confines of what is accepted, Jose Davila uses wood and metal materials to explore these concepts.

Living and working in Guadalajara, Mexico, Jose Davila's sculptures often inform the environment in one way or other. Full of abstract shapes, there is an overall industrial aesthetic to his creations. Using lights and other objects to accent his main materials, Jose Davila really delves into his creative soul.

Jose Davila is the director and co-founder of an artist run space (OPA).
