Born in Barcelona, Vicente Rojo was an important member of the Breakaway Generation which challenged the supremacy of Mexican muralism. He explored the modern vision of Mexico as a painter, graphic designer, sculptor, and publisher. His style encompasses Spanish informalism — which resists artistic traditions and continually seeks innovative techniques and approaches to art. Rojo’s paintings are characterized by geometric series, divided into five distinct periods: Signs, Negotiations, Memories, Mexico Under the Rain, and Scenarios. He was one of the influential abstract artists of the postwar period.
