colorful print of a butterfly that fills an entire square


Julio Del Rio assembles small militias of powerful and strange, sometimes humanoid, ceramic figures (frequently seen on paper or canvas as well). Many of the figures sport a skin etched with text or symbols, glazed in bursts of color, and his paintings are densely packed with detail, verging on psychedelic. Del Rio takes a quietly enthusiastic and multidisciplinary approach to his creative process, materializing his artistic vision very directly into paint, clay and glaze.
