Artist Statement: Julio Mendoza, aka Juls, is a multidisciplinary artist who celebrates his heritage through art. His style, “Surrealismo Cultural,” or “Cultural Surrealism,” focuses on cultural identity, community, and social justice. Born in El Paso, Texas, and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Juls says of his heritage: “I am who I am in most part because of my Mexican and Latino heritage. Therefore, incorporating my heritage into my art is meaningful to me, and I feel it’s meaningful to those who can relate to that sentiment as well.” For Juls, the greatest gift is to get inspired by one’s own traditions, food, people and colors, and he feels blessed to be able to put all these into an art piece and inspire others.
