Not a month goes by without a photo of their work being printed somewhere in the world, be it in fashion, entertainment or music magazines.
Tupac, a successful Mexican of Huichol descent, is director of the visual studio Satore Studio.
His multidisciplinary career began in 2002, with Humberto Espíndola in scenography and costumes for the Opera de Bellas Artes and the Cervantino Festival, where he learned stage techniques, audio, video, makeup, etc.
Later he went to live entertainment for flamenco companies, became an art director for MTV Latin America and from there he approached rock bands and international festivals, where he learned lighting.
In 2008 he decided to go to London to start from scratch, achieving great prestige worldwide since then.
In 2012 he made his debut as director of the multidisciplinary show Nierka (Huichol) in London, one of the international arts and culture Meccas.
For Tupac the stage is a blank canvas, where there are no laws, it can create countless things, take people to new worlds, new emotions, you can crush them, make them feel strongly. A great canvas to generate ideas.
In its artistic work, culture has no borders, the cultured and the popular or commercial are not in conflict with the show.
He keeps abreast of new techniques and advances, constantly looking for what is happening outside of his industry, not only entertainment, but military, in video games, in cinema, off Broadway theater.
Tupac is also committed to exploring different areas of art, design, organic products and sustainable tourism to support and preserve the cultural and spiritual heritage of the peoples of Mexico through its Satore foundation.
