About

A large and impressive abstract oil on canvas by noted Mexican artist Leopoldo Flores. It is intemporal and yet to me also perfectly embodies the 1970s, when it was painted. It would work wonderfully in a home with mid century modern furniture. Leopoldo Flores is mostly known for his murals and other monumental works which are concentrated in the city of Toluca, State of Mexico. He was born into a poor family in rural State of Mexico, but his artistic ability was evident early and he was able to attend the Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado “La Esmeralda” and receive a scholarship to study in Paris. His best known work is the Cosmovitral, a large work in stained glass, and the Aratmósfera, a “land art”. Both pieces are located in Toluca. The first is used as a symbol for the State of Mexico, and the latter dominates the main stadium and the hill behind it at the main campus of the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México. Flores received a number of recognitions of his work from the State of Mexico and an honorary doctorate from the UAEM, which also founded the Museo Universitario Leopoldo Flores to house and promote his work.
