Francisco Toledo

FRANCISCO TOLEDO, THE MOST IMPORTANT LIVING MEXICAN ARTIST TODAY, IN SANDIA FOLK!

Oaxaca  acclaimed painter, Francisco Toledo, known all around the world and whose works have reached exorbitant prices in auctions such as Sotheby’s and Christie’s, has developed an altruistic project aiming to help artisans in Oaxaca so that they can perfect their artistic techniques and promote their own work.

Toledo is not only known as the most important Mexican artist of our generation but also as a social warrior, committed in standing by the side of the most vulnerable classes of society.

In this project, Toledo along with other artists, generously donated their designs so that craftsmen, using traditional techniques, can create functional and decorative items. Francisco Toledo has hand signed each of the items bearing his name, in a way subsidizing the value of his singature.

As a result of this collaboration between fine and popular artists, beautiful items have surfaced ranging from jewelry and puzzle games coloring books.

We present to you these beautiful works, hand signed by the maestro Toledo as author of the designs.
