Werc Street Artist: Jari Werc Alvarez was born in Ciudad Juarez (1980), Mexico and grew up in Texas where he began his artistic career. Werc is clearly an art activist: He reinterprets and explores the balance and duality of our identity and society. Subcultural symbols, magical artefacts, vibrant colors, confusion in shapes and hybrid figures of man and animal gives off a spiritual vibe. There is a domination of animality spreading into our psychological conflicts here: Are we not all shapeshifters? The duality is also cultural as Werc was living and creating at the Mexico-US border.
