About Rayos Magos

Rayos Magos is a local Chicano artist born and raised in San Jose, CA. The name of Rayos Magos comes from a play on the famous Mexican holiday celebrating the three kings/wiseman ( Los Reyes Magos) in the birth of Jesus. Though not religious, Rayos was inspired by the magic surrounding this holiday when living abroad in Mexico City for two years. In Spanish, Rayos translates as rays as well as Mexican slang for (damn, darn, shoot). Magos signifies magic, magician, and religious prophet. Therefore, the combination of words is taken to represent the artist's personality and drive to create something from nothing. Rayos Magos takes his inspiration from spirituality, psychology, graphic design and graffiti. With a background in the healing arts Rayos utilizes his deeper understanding and appreciation of the innermost most psyche of humans. His work looks to translate and birth into existence the unreal into the real. Rayos unifies his interests in mixed media, collage, graffiti, and visual arts in order to represent imagery that captures the inner psycho-spiritual world.
