Damián Siqueiros is a Mexican-Canadian Montreal based image maker, a photographer, not the kind that reflects reality, but the kind that imagines one to transform it into something tangible, most often through multidisciplinary work, that includes art direction, stage design, make-up or styling.
As a commercial photographer he helps clients find their visual voice and express themselves through compelling imagery that makes long lasting impressions. That not only improves their sales, but inspires their public. Such is the case of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Vogue Mexico, Elle Mexico and Porrua bookstore.
As an artist he is an avid defender of gender equality the environment and equal cultural representation . He seamlessly weaves references from his own cultural heritage into his images making for images of striking colour and texture.
With his work he seeks to provoke emotions, change conversations and respectful confrontation. His work has earned him great opportunities of being exhibited in museums and galleries throughout North America and Europe. It has also earned him the opportunity to work with amazing artist who he admires, such as choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Canadian dance icon Margie Gillis.
Damián is a beauty seeker, not the shallow version of it, but the one that often hides from the eyes, the one that embraces and enhances the transformative power of art. He is a seeker of beauty because, as Dostoyevsky said "beauty will save the world" and he plans to do it one image at a time.
