Ricardo Mazal Biography

Born in Mexico in 1950, Ricardo Mazal has become one of Mexico's leading contemporay artists whose multidisciplinary practice explores themes of death, transformation, and regeneration. His work has been greatly influenced by his childhood and upbringing in Mexico, resulting in abstract paintings of vivid colour that reflect the visual language and culture apparent in Mexico. He likes to explore the full potential of the canvas through strong lines, pure colours, painterly effects, and text.
