The Collection is inspired by humanity and by some advances throughout history that particularly interest me, such as:
The fire, the hunt, the navigation, the aviation, the technology.
Important events for the formation and development of civilization as we know it.
The visual narrative of the works is characterized by an analogy between the past and the present.
In some pieces I use Greek sculpture as a symbol of mythology and longing for the past, as opposed to planes, ships or space telescopes, technological objects of the present aimed at the future, as well as symbols of human progress.

Through his “Avanza” Collection, Cesar (B. 1986 - Jalisco, Mexico) demonstrates that Mexico,
harbor talent to compete with great international artists, as well as to conquer world collectors.
His Exhibition is the effort of months of work crystallized in oil paintings of different formats, but without a doubt the most important and transcendental is the Discourse: the advancement of human beings with respect to technology.
Each work is an invitation to reflect on epoches in our history, each piece is an analogy that houses multiple fascinating elements that have made humanity “advance”.
