As an artist, the work of Pepiro van Roncha is influenced by his career in design, his strong Mexican roots, his practice in Buddhism and, the experiences accumulated when living and working in Europe. More specifically, Pepiro has solid skills in abstraction and conceptualization, rich background in Mexican arts and traditions, and a natural inclination for Scandinavian minimalism and functionalism. The complex interplay of these diverse influences and frameworks blend in his continuous exploration of human emotions, inner peace and, death.
