Luis Arenal Bastar (1909 – 1985)


Media: Lithographs
Themes:The founders and inspiring spirits of the TGP

Luis Arenal Bastar was born in Mexico City, Arenal was almost entirely self-taught as an artist. While in his early twenties, Arenal began to work with and assist David Alfaro Siqueiros. He was one of the founding members of the TGP along with Leopoldo Mendez. He spent a seminal time of his artistic career in the United States receiving a number of key commissions for murals. A muralist as well as printmaker, sculptor and painter, the work selected for this exhibit displays his skillful transmutation from muralist to printmaker.
