Welcome to Mr.O.

Welcome to Mr. O! I’m so thrilled to have you as a visitor on this site full of art. First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the brand I created, Mr.O. 

I’m originally from Monterrey, Mexico and have always loved to paint. I began doing my paintings 15 years ago as a hobby, and did them exclusively on canvas. It wasn’t until recently that my mother gave me the idea to start painting on different surfaces that Mr.O was born. The idea to create art on ordinary objects. 

The main idea of this blog is to talk about the inspiration that makes me wake up to work happily. I get my inspiration from people who have made an achievement in the world, famous artists, books, music, etc. There’s always a story behind the shoes. 

If you explore the “flats” section, you will find a category called “Mighty Girls” where you will be able to find that all of the shoes have a unique name, as well as a quote. These phrases are specially selected for the shoes because most of the times they are the source of inspiration, and these quotes come from a range selection between phrases from my grandmother Alicia, to Janis Joplin and her album “Love, Janis” an album, that by the way, always makes me cry (If you haven’t heard it. Please do, Trust me.)   

I love Mexico. I love bright Mexican colors. I love “Street Art”. I would love to graffiti all over my city if it weren’t illegal and frowned upon.  but over all, I love combining bright colors with paintings of fast food, and phrases, and animals, and paintings that tell stories, combined with modern art. 

I like to think about the people that came before us that made a change for the society that we live in today.  All of those famous Mexican and International individuals that made the world a little better or a bit more fun. It is to those people that I dedicate my art to. 

Lastly, I want to thank all of the people that helped me achieve my goal to create Mr.O. To all of the people who appreciate art. To my first clients that encouraged me to keep on creating and that ensured me that my products were good. 

Now I would like to invite you to try it. To dare to wear something that really represents who you are in a cool and unique way! After all,  that’s what Mr.O is all about!
