The results of his work oscillate between eschatology, violence, sacred, erotic crudity and autobiography to propose a particular surrealism.
Postulating a singular working methodology, Muñoz explores different techniques without exhausting each one’s achievements. His projects range from urban art to sound experimentation, from drawing to animation, from screen printing to fazine, from painting to sculpture, from performance to art direction; and vice versa.
