Cisco Jiménez Mexican, b. 1969

Biography

Cisco Jiménez attended the Instituto Regional de Bellas Artes and the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana before moving on to study with Bruce Dorfman and Jose Manuel Springer. He was also one of the first Artpace International Artist-in-Residence in the winter of 1995.

 

Jiménez’s oeuvre consists of various mediums that expose the concerns of Mexico’s social and political environment. The vibrant colors, rich detail and often the use of text, create a satiric voice that demands 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 has exhibited widely at the Contemporary Art Museum of Oaxaca, Mexico; The Modern Art Museum of Mexico City, Mexico; and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Guayaquil, Ecuador. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Isabel and Agustin Coppel Collection, Mexico; the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, CA; and the USC Fisher Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA, among others.
