Alberto Castro Leñero, 24.08.22 - 18.09.22

Over the course of four decades of artistic work, Alberto Castro Leñero has explored diverse expressive and conceptual possibilities through painting, sculpture, printmaking and, more recently, video. Always on the lookout for ways to innovate, his work deals with the human figure and the abstract representation of violence and the urban environment, as these are often integrated into architectural and urban projects. The eclecticism of his pictorial vocabulary has allowed him to create an emblematic style that has continued to evolve over the years.

Alberto Castro Leñero studied Fine arts at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City and painting at the Accademia Belle Arti in Bologna, Italy. From 1982 to 1987 he taught at the National School of Visual Arts in Mexico City. He gives workshops and courses in painting and visual creation in Mexican art schools and cultural spaces. His recent commissions have focused on public art in urban spaces in Mexico and recently in Qatar, including ceramic sculptures and murals. Castro Leñero has received many grants from the Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (FONCA) of Mexico and was a guest artist at the Symposium International D'Art Contemporain in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. Since the 1970s, he has regularly exhibited his work in important institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in Mexico City, the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, the Saitama Museum of Modern Art in Japan and the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, Texas, among many others.
