Jose Luis Cuevas, born in Mexico in 1934, is a self-taught artist, engraver, and sculptor.
During the 1950s, Cuevas was very active in the "Rupture Generation
- Generacion de Rupture" that looked for a break from the Mexican
mural painting school with its social content message. His symbols
are of the inner conflict and turmoil of mankind. Looking inward,
he is sometimes likened to Franz Kafka. His art has a unique
style that clearly indentifies his work. He has received many
awards, including the Drawing Price at the V Biennial of Sao
Paulo (1959), and the National Prize of Science and Art of Mexico
(1981), the highest distinction awarded scientists and artists
by the Mexican Government.
