Cisco Jiménez – ENG

Cisco Jiménez (1969) is a Mexican artist. He studied at the Regional Institute of Fine Arts and in the University Autónoma Metropolitana before studying with Bruce Dorfman and Jose Manuel Springer. Jiménez was also one of the first Artspace International Artist-in-Residence in the winter of 1995.

Using various mediums, the artist exposes the concerns of the political and social environment in Mexico. His works marked by vibrant colors, rich details and frequent use of text create a satirical voice that demands our attention. “I consider myself a kind of postmodern Posada. I think that a good artist and a smart artist should consider the good things that he can do or he can express. Talent is only half of it. There is another part, a dark side, an awareness of anxieties and obsessions.” – Cisco Jiménez

Cisco Jiménez’s work has been widely exhibited at Museo de arte Contemporaneo de Oaxaca, Mexico; Museo de arte moderno, Mexico; Museo de arte contemporaneo de Guayaquil, Ecuador. His work is present in permanent collections such as the Isabel and Augustin Coppel Collection, Mexico; Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, CA; and the USC Fisher Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA, among others.
