Francisco Toledo is widely regarded as the most important, elusive and controversial artist working in Mexico today. As exemplified in the new body of work, Toledo’s art draws on human, animal and mineral life and explores both indigenous, Zapotec, and worldwide cultures. He freely associates direct observations from nature with metaphors from literature and art. The works of Blake, Ensor, Goya and the writings of Kafka and Borges have been especially influential.
