Rufino Tamayo Gallery     Prints.     Full biography.
Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991)
Tamayo, a Zapotecan Indian was born in Oaxaca. While his contemporaries Siqueiros, Rivera and Orozco advocated art with a political message, Tamayo remained fiercely committed to painting as a spiritual activity. Tamayo's work focused on plastic forms integrated with a masterful use of colors and textures. Tamayo developed "MixografiaŽ," a graphic technique to obtain colored and textured three-dimensional prints on handmade paper.
