Artist name

Piña, Raúl

Birth date



Raúl Piña is a Mexican-born artist who has lived and worked in London since 1997, having studied in Mexico City. Originally from Pachuca, his cultural references are drawn from the Toltecs, who were held by the Aztecs to be the master craftsmen and artists of ancient Mexico. In this painting, as in his other work, including performances, Piña draws on the rich myths and symbols of Mexico as a means to reflect on the connections between worlds past and present.
