Francisco Toledo is a printmaker, painter and sculptor, and a great patron of the arts in Oaxaca, Mexico, his native state. Known by everyone as “el Maestro,” he is the driving force behind Oaxaca’s cultural renaissance, which includes the founding of museums and art centers, the restoration of historical monuments and the establishment of a pre-Columbian ethnobotanical garden in the ruins of a 16th century monastic garden.
The artist is passionately engaged with the history and religion of the indigenous Mexican peoples. His work deals with themes of creation, sensuality and metamorphosis, and is often located in the world of the spirits where animals and humans freely commingle.
In the drypoint etching Vegetales, Toledo depicts plant forms in movement and flux, revealing a dynamic life vital to man’s existence.
Toledo’s work is included in national and international public collections, including: The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; The Art Museum, Princeton University, NJ; Kunstmuseum, Bern Switzerland; Malmo Museum, Malmo, Sweden, Musee d’art Contemporain, Lyon, France and Tate Gallery, London, England.
