Domestic Fine Arts. Bajo el pseudónimo Domestic Fine Arts, Jésus Léon ha combinado fotografía, música y prácticas periodísticas por más de quince años. Su imaginario en el que muestra a ‘modelos’ posee no solo el glamour de una revista de moda, sino que permite personificar escenas profundamente románticas. En el trabajo de León Hernández, la intensidad de la propia vida se vuelve frágil y fugaz, para mostrar una versión oscura del amor, la oscuridad y la destrucción.

Under the pseudonym and long-term project Domestic Fine Arts, León has combined photographic, musical and journalistic practices for fifteen years. His imagery, at times displaying models, does not only have the glamour of fashion magazines, much more they come to embody deeply romantic scenes. In León’s work, the intensity of life itself becomes fragile and fleeting, displaying a dark version of love and destruction.

Jesús León

Mexico, 1974.
Lives and works in Mexico City.

Jesús León is an acute self-taught documentary photographer with a rare contemporary eye. Almost two decades ago, he launched Domestic Fine Arts, which accumulates more than 200,000 Mexico City’s vibrant countercultures scenes. This work has gained international recognition with exhibitions in Mexico, USA, Japan or Sweden. His oeuvre belongs to Colección Jumex the best Latin American contemporary art collection and museum (built by David Chipperfield in Mexico City).

Being painfully shy when he started the project, Jesús León sensual photographs quickly began connecting him with the people he photographed in a delicate complicity for the sake of registering a moment of sheer bliss. Growing up with his two unwed aunts, he recalls the Mexican cinema of the 40’s they liked to watch, a major influence in his photographs.

In 2002, his work was shown in the traveling show Mex Art Fest., from Los Angeles to Kyoto. He collaborated in Mexico’s national cultural television channel Canal 22’s  ‘El Show del Insomnio’ “Arteria” with the notorious capsules “Paparazzo del Terrore”. From 2008 until its closing in 2011, he was represented by Garash Gallery, Mexico City. He is henceforth working with the gallery ALMANAQUE.

Jesús León participated in the Foundation Jumex group show “Jumex Collection, In Girum Imus Nocte et Consumimur Igni” in 2015. In 2016, Domestic Fine Arts was released as publication, taking the form of a self-published artist magazine.

 Under the pseudonym and long-term project Domestic Fine Arts, León has combined photographic, musical and journalistic practices for fifteen years. His imagery, at times displaying models, does not only have the glamour of fashion magazines, much more they come to embody deeply romantic scenes. In León’s work, the intensity of life itself becomes fragile and fleeting, displaying a dark version of love and destruction.
