Carlos Génova is an artist born in Mexico City who currently develops his work in the city of Mérida. His most recent series is titled Teboris, referring to the Japanese tattoo technique of the 18th and 19th centuries where ink is introduced into the skin through fine bamboo needles. This tradition came from the Japanese peasants that sought to evoke the nobleman's flowered kimono. At the time of battle, they shed their clothes to evoke the idea that everyone was the same and that what was important was the true inner warrior.
Genova takes up these tattoos in a contemporary way to express his emotions and personal stories in his art, implying that he faces them like a warrior.
