Eduardo Zamora

Mexico, 1942

Eduardo Zamora attended the School of Fine Arts in Mexico City and then studied in Krakow, Poland. In 1973, he moved to Paris. In his painting, he explores cultural crossroads, linking western culture to the symbolic depth of the primitive arts. The depicted scenes are generally board games, scenes of adultery, reports of rivalries, bullfights and scenes from everyday life in an ethereal and dreamlike environment. Religious themes, such as hell and original sin, and Mexican spiritualities, are recurrent in his work. In his works we find characters bewitched by hallucinogenic dreams, often surrounded by fantastic animals and unidentifiable hybrid entities.
