Biography / Saner

Edgar Flores, better known as Saner, is a Mexican illustrator, graphic designer and street artist. His surrealism-influenced murals show animals and human-like figures, wearing traditional Mexican garment with their faces covered by Nahale masks, which, according to mythology, have the power to transform humans into animals. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/6 in 2014.

Growing up around graffiti art in Mexico City in the 1990s, he developed his own take on Mexican culture and folklore. As Saner evolved as an artist, his Mexican identity became stronger and he tried less and less to emulate American or European visual languages. Incorporating traditional symbols, colours, clothing and masks of Mexican culture into his artwork, while combining elements from graphic design, drawing and graffiti, he developed his own, very unique style. With his work the trained graphic designer aims to rediscover the respect for the natural world and all of its living beings while at the same time trying to display the eternal battle of man in his struggle for survival in a world full of anger, violence and fear.
