I have been invited to collaborate with an image for the 14th issue of Ruperto Carola Magazine from Heidelberg University, in Munich. This participation is a special one for several reasons, first, because my image represents the article “Absolute Science in an Absolute World” written by FRANK ENGEHAUSEN, an article about Philipp Lenard and his controversial and not very successful career as an opponent of Albert Einstein in the Scientific world, and whom was, in fact, the science spokes person of the third reich. Secondly, I am honored to have been selected by KMS team to participate in this highly respected publication, and for the way we have dealt in participating in the publication, being this the first time I license my work to a third party company going through a very smooth process, where all parts involved win. So I send my gratitude to the KMS Team, Ruperto Carola magazine and the University of Heidelberg.
Very exited to have been invited by Photoworks UK to take over their Instagram Account during the first week of January to promote my work to the UK Audiences. Please see the feature bout my work on their website and follow up on their instagram account.

In memory of my Grandfather, a Painter, who was my first teacher in the arts. I am sharing a text I published on my Facebook Page. He was the founder of the Institute of Fine Arts of Zacatecas, México, Consultant to the Department of Culture of our state, an Art and Architecture conservationist, a pictorial chronist, writer, teacher and painter, among other achievements during his lifetime. He was honored by the Governor of the state and received several prices and honors during his enduring career such as Honorary Citizen of Zacatecas City.

Today the great head of the Enciso family said goodbye to us. I'll miss you, grandpa, we'll miss you all! You inspired us all in every way. You were a great friend, great grandfather, great artist, great teacher and above all an excellent person. An extraordinary citizen, who, despite all his deficiencies and circumstances, had a great vision and was able to raise such a large family. We loved you so much, surely you will be calmer now. Thank you for everything, for having been so generous and having open arms for everyone, thank you for having given us time to each one of us, your many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. With him I learned to draw and paint with watercolors as a child, and besides being my grandfather, he was my first teacher in the arts, as well as the teacher of many other artists in Zacatecas, you were great inspiration for everyone and for many people. You managed to strengthen the identity of your family and your city through your work. Whatever I can say, will be very little for the quality of the person you were. Rest in peace. JOSE MANUEL ENCISO GONZALEZ
