With an almost humorous nihilism, he explores the passage and futility of life, often focusing on the vertiginous possibilities of frozen moments.

In previous projects Lebrija approached the subject of Mexican daily life, dissecting the social and cultural structures that support it. Through gestures that might seem naïve, the artist makes evident the contingency of institutions that provide solidity to daily life interactions; the bureaucratic dynamics are translated into childish games and the obsession with productivity derived from the capitalist ethos is reduced to the absurd.
