José Bedia adds autobiographical context into the majority of his works. He combines anthropology, theology, history, culture, and personal experience in his art. His adopted religion, Palo Monte (an Afro-Latin religion), has been a significant influence on his work. Bedia creates physical pieces that represent the intangible rituals of his religion. Male figure representing the “common man” is an often-repeated image in several of Bedia’s works. His combination of Afro-Latin traditions, popular culture, anthropology, and religion presents the viewer with powerful art that serves as the artist’s biography as well as physical representation of ritualistic experiences.
