Horacio Quiroz Mexican, b. 1981

Overview

Mexican painter Horacio Quiroz celebrates the tension between beauty and the grotesque through his depictions of contorted human figures. At times comically surreal, Quiroz adopts a distinctive approach to conveying movement on canvas, constantly straddling the line between reality and the fantastical.

Quiroz graduated in Graphic Design from Universidad Iberoamericana. Just 3 years after starting his artistic career, Quiroz exhibited in the XVII Rufino Tamayo Biennial of Painting. His artistic proposal was in turn exhibited across galleries and art fairs in Mexico, Australia, United States and Europe. His work has been published in blogs and magazines in the United States, Canada, Denmark, UK, Germany, Spain, Chile and Mexico among others. Selected solo exhibitions include: Disturbingly Lively, Galería Colector, Monterrey NL, México (2020); Polarities, Booth Gallery, New York City (2018); Sneak Peak into Love and Fear, Galería Progreso, México City (2016).
