Jose Luis Cuevas (Mexican, 1934)

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.
