Barajas' practice consists of an inquiry into visuality based on experimentation with different techniques. In his work his personal experiences, iconography of popular culture and elements of different pictorial traditions are combined. Folk motifs are interspersed with technical processes ranging from conventional drawing and painting to abstraction and experimentation with new materials. In this way, Barajas's work is presented as a visual language that challenges the viewer's perception and memory.
