"I & U / 1,2 1,2"
By Santos Guerrero

Reality is a mental labyrinth / ignorance, its linear beast.
When ignorance fuels destruction / history, strategically repeats.
Awareness of awareness / elevates the dreamer from its sleep.
Dare to dream awake / encourage memory beyond illusionary feats.
If knowledge is power / grant wisdom to reign supreme.
Unearth your history / from this labyrinth we dream.
Ye are stars / reality sets free.
Love is the path / imagination has its doors / transformation, your key.

About Santos Guerrero
Santos Guerrero (Monterrey, Mexico - 1979): A resident of Houston, Texas, since the age of three, Santos began creating visual art in his early twenties, selling out his first solo show in 2006 while painting under the artist moniker, TKNY. Santos employs a vast range of techniques from oil-based, acrylic, industrial and aerosol paints to avant-garde forms involving various forms of medium-applications, all with a keen eye for the emotive power of color. His compositions blend inter-dimensional time/space narratives to create surrealist landscapes, often centered around anti-form line compositions.
