Francisco Toledo
20th century
(Juchitán, Oaxaca, Mexico, 1940 - 2019, Juchitán, Oaxaca, Mexico)

Born 1940, Juchitán, Oaxaca, Mexico; active 1957–1960, Mexico City; 1960–1965, Paris; 1965–1981, Oaxaca, Mexico; 1981–1983, New York; 1983–present, Cuernavaca, Mexico - Mexico City - Oaxaca Toledo’s work disrupts the boundaries erected by traditional art discourses that distinguish between "high" and "low" art and separate traditional artistic expression from the contemporary. He fuses pre-Columbian symbolism with allusions to works by modern artists like Paul Klee and Rufino Tamayo and modern writers such as Franz Kafka, creating fabulous universes where human and animal worlds merge.
