Leon Chartarifsky was raised in Mexico City from parents fleeing communism in Europe.
From early childhood he showed great interest in painting. He studied the harmony of colors and the vision of space.
These studies were instrumental in shaping up his vision of nature and, in doing so, his
Imagination to create vibrating and emotional works of art that blend areas of pure texture and color with otherwise still forms of natural objects.
Leon Chartarifsky is definitely a pioneer. His talent creates a space that leads to an interpretation of the universe, as forms are pulled and twisted into continuous chromatic bonfire. This is the tribute that the artist gives to each of his creations!
In 1980, He designed the new wing of the Museum De San Carlos in Mexico City
In 1990, The University of Mexico awarded him an Honorary Degree in Arts.
In 1999, he received an award from the Art Institute of Mexico.
