Jose Samano is a Mexican artist who has been devoted over 60 years to painting, focusing mainly on the realization of landscapes and still lifes. He studied at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas in Mexico City, formerly called Real Academia de San Carlos, where he had classes with Luis Nishizawa and other renowned masters.
His landscapes in the style of Jose Maria Velasco show panoramic scenes where winding roads, mountains, rivers, towns, and churches converge and harmonize with beautiful blue skies full of clouds and sun rays. The details of his works are so abundant, when you admire them you can travel to those places and see the vegetation and foliage, the movement and transparency of the rivers, as well as the lives of the people who inhabit them.
Women washing in the river, pilgrimages along the roads, horsemen, animals drinking water from a stream, kids running around, people playing musical instruments, are scenes that appear in most of its landscapes and give them a special warmth.
Jose Samano is heir and successor of work done in Mexico during the nineteenth century by Jose Maria Velasco and some travelers landscapers as August Lohr and Conrad Wise Chapman, absorbing their thoughts on the panoramic landscape and representation of everyday life, but with a more modern and vivid palette of color, corresponding to the twentieth century painting. Jose Samano also replace the Velasco’s and his contemporaries’ historic character showed in theirs works, that used to represent specific places, views, ranches, and villages of Mexico, replacing it by a character more poetic and conceptual which emphasizes the beauty of the landscape itself and culture of his time, painting in most of the time not representative landscapes of a particular place, but rather scenes that synthesize the overall landscape and life of his time.
Currently Jose Samano is considered one of the greatest living landscapers of Mexico.

Now, the renowned artist Jazzamoart is part of the group of artists represented by Inverarte Art Gallery. His work is deeply related to the music, that is why he decided to use Jazzamoart as his artistic name, it is a fusion of the words “Jazz,” “amo” (I love) and “art.” If you see one of his paintings and hear a Jazz song at the same time, you can feel like the music is coming from his painting, and how all the characters and scenery are alive and vibrating with the music's rhythm. He has been a professional painter for 45 years, and presented more than 150 solo exhibitions in museums and galleries.

CHUCHO REYES ha sido considerado durante décadas como una de las personalidades artísticas más originales de la plástica mexicana del siglo XX. Anticuario, decorador, escenógrafo, personaje de irresistible fascinación, la influencia y el magisterio de Chucho Reyes fueron reconocidos por figuras de la talla de Luis Barragán, Mathias Goeritz, Juan Soriano, Paul Westheim, Octavio Paz y muchos otros, así como Picasso y Chagall admiraron la fuerza inventiva y el colorido de su pintura.

We are very pleased to announce that artist Carlos Oviedo has joined to our roster of represented artists.

While Carlos Oviedo's grid-based paintings are inspired by Piet Mondrian’s 1930s geometric Compositions, his work most certainly harkens back to Pop Art, with its bold colors, graphic lines and imagery reminiscent of Warhol. Due to the core graphic properties of each piece the result is incredibly eye-catching. Exploring the limits of realistic representation, Oviedo’s 361° series is an artistic discourse on the irony of the processed image in a world of duplication, retouching and photoshop; and in a North American Art Market saturated with Warholian prints. Yet Oviedo’s technique also brings an interesting and important twist: the introduction of a most noble and notoriously difficult medium: Oil Painting. He uses Old Master Ingres’ “Grisaille” technique (oil painting in shades of grey) in order to achieve a high degree of Realism, recalling the look of vintage Sepia photography. A return to a classic technique pushed to the highest degree of perfection, Oviedo’s paintings are delicate masterful originals.

Alfredo Arreguin is a Mexican-American painter. He was born in Morelia, Michoacan in 1935, but he immigrated to Seattle, Washington when he was just 21 years old and since then he has developed all his artistic career in United States. 

He is considered as one of the most important representatives of the “American Pattern Painting” movement started in the mid 1970s, also considered by Robert Wilson and the art critic David Schaff as “the first American painter in this mode.” 

He has presented incredible solo exhibitions in many important museums of United States, Mexico and Spain, such as, The Mexican Museum in San Francisco; Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art in New York; El Museo del Barrio in New York; San Antonio Museum of Art; Fresno Metropolitan Museum of Art in California; Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum in Chicago; Seattle Art Museum in Washington; Palacio Clavijero in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico; Museo de America in Madrid, Spain; and many others.

In 1994, his triptych “Dream: Eve Before Adam” was acquired by the National Museum of American Art through the Smithsonian Institution; and in 2008, his painting “The Return to Aztlan” is acquired for the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C.

In 1995 the Mexican government gave him the “Ohtli Award”, the Mexican government’s highest honor for a civilian living outside of Mexico who has devoted part of his/her life and professional activities to “forging a new path” abroad for their country men and women. And in 2013, the State of Michoacan’s goverment, in Mexico, organized him a Homage.
