"...ser artista es mejor que trabajar en
McDonald's..."
- Jesús 'Bubu' Negrón


Jesús 'Bubu' Negrón (b. 1975) lives and works between Barceloneta and San Juan, Puerto Rico
Bubu has this unselfishness, a line that goes through his work... the idea of self-sacrifice that comes from popular legends. What's really interesting is that Bubu is the first person i know who is a natural... something i had never seen. Everyone I've met who knows nothing about art history makes crappy art... except Bubu. He's the first guy I know who really was born for this shit... I'm impressed by that.


Also... he takes certain sociopolitical ideas but at a personal level, a personal analysis. Instead of being macro he sees it at the level of how it affects the person, the individual. He's not interested in actions that spark large-scale collective social movements. He's different... he's one of those still using visual poetry, i mean, his work is not literal in that sense. He's a romantic artist working inside an arid system and uses the language of conceptualism for romantic goals.
