> DESCRIPTION

Chicago, Illinois- Prospectus Art gallery is pleased to present the work of Chicago based artist Roberto Ferreyra.

 

Born in 1957 in Morelia, Mexico. The paradoxical images of the daily workers, fantastic images like the mermaid, fantastic animals, indigenous symbols, and other Mexican iconography are mixed in this recent work: drawings, prints and paintings, of an artist that does not forget his imaginary and mixed memories with the contemporary life in a great city like Chicago.

 

 

Critics like Alberto Hijar, Carlos Blas, Luis Carlos Emerich,

Laura Elenes and others have written about his work which has been published in different books such as “Mexican Printmaking in the 20th century”, and the most recent in the work by Humberto Musachchio about the famous “El Taller de Grafica Popular”.
