Josť Luis Cuevas
Mexican, b. 1934


Works Available

 

Mexican draughtsman, printmaker and painter. He showed early artistic talent and briefly attended the Escuela Nacional de Pintura y Escultura ‘La Esmeralda’ in Mexico City, which he left because he did not agree with its teaching methods; he was thus essentially self-taught.

He studied graphic arts at the Institución de Enseñanza Universitaria in Mexico City c. 1948. At the Galería Prisse in Mexico City he joined a group of young artists, including Alberto Gironella, Enrique Echeverriá, Pedro Coronel, Manuel Felguérez and Francisco Icaza (b 1930), who were opposed to the socialist artists favored by the Government and whose rebellion against the official mural art was instrumental in modifying the contemporary artistic panorama. Cuevas conducted an aggressive polemic against David Alfaro Siqueiros and his more dogmatic followers, publishing the manifesto ‘La cortina de nopal’ (Novedades, 1957).

In 1953 he had his first exhibition at the Galería Prisse; its success led to its being shown the following year at the Pan American Union, Washington, DC, and later to Cuevas’s receiving worldwide exposure and recognition as a draughtsman and graphic artist. He was subsequently invited to work in various workshops worldwide, including the Tamarind Workshop in Los Angeles, CA, and Poligrafa in Barcelona in 1981, while in Mexico he worked at the Taller Kyron, among others.
