Daniel Lezama’s painting and aesthetic vision focus on extraordinarily painted narratives, referenced from the Mexican vernacular context, on the unofficial stories of memories, dreams and desires, as well as on a new romanticism that sees art under an existential perspective. Usually making large or medium format paintings and sometimes drawing, monotype and engraving, Lezama expresses his profound and unprecedented vision of "the Mexican" in an era marked by post-conceptual practices.

Daniel Lezama has participated in solo exhibitions at venues such as Museo de la Ciudad, Mexico City, Mexico (2008); Roebling Hall Gallery, New York, USA (2002); Hof & Huyser Galerie, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (1998), among others.
