Alberto Mijangos
Sages Series

C. 2004

About

This mixed-media painting is complex and richly textured. As part of the Sages series, this painting features a Sage in the middle of the pictorial space. The rest of the space portrays different dark and luminescent images. The artist marks many of the quadrants with white chalk; in some, he may have used encaustic to achieve a high degree of brilliance. In the bottom right hand, the artist has affixed a collaged canvas to the already rich painted board. As commonly found with Mijangos pieces, it is not signed, however the pewter colored frame was hand picked by the artist himself. Born in Mexico City, Alberto Mijangos studied in the 1940's at San Carlos Art Academy and the School of the Chicago Art Institute. Mijangos belonged to the generation that came after Rivera and Siqueiros; he knew Tamayo whose influence he felt as a young painter. Mijangos matured as an artist in San Antonio, Texas, and considered himself both Mexican and American. His work, abstract with decidedly figurative elements, is that of a master artist.
