Ophiee is a Mexican-American artist, born in Mexico City, 1978; raised in Los Angeles, California. He has been painting autodidactly since childhood and has academic studies in both countries.

By the mid 1980´s, he was inspired by the futuristic cartoons, the American Graffiti subculture, the traditional L.A Cholo writing and the New York - Hip Hop movement.

His work explores and dialogues in diverse statements: an ambiguous aspect in Abstract painting; as which he describes as Aerocubism. Calligraphy; written in Roman alphabet by means of archaic languages and dilaects of ancient mesoamerican cultures with a personalized style of fonts. Roots; a research section that approaches themes from human and animal life, nature, world archeology and the mystery of the universe. And a social experiment with sleeping persons on the street with intentionate written words or phrases as a pictoric interpretation of a dream or thought, the Street Dreams.
