(Mexico, b. 1940)

 

Widely regarded as Mexico's greatest living artist, Francisco Toledo has a range of talents second to none. He is a master printmaker, draftsman, painter, sculptor, and ceramist. His art reflects a deep appreciation for the aesthetics of nature, particularly of animals not conventionally associated with beauty (bats, iguanas, toads, insects). Toledo's moral vision affirms that the world of human beings and the animal world are one with nature. He displays a highly developed sense of the fantastic, creating hybrid creatures, part human and part animal, both playful and monstrous.
