Oswaldo Vigas (Venezuelan, 1926-2014)
Oil and gouache on board laid on canvas
26 in x 18 3/4 in (66 cm x 48 cm)
Predominantly recognized as a self-taught painter, he also worked
in architectural murals, sculptures, ceramics, prints and drawings.
Vigas is one of Venezuela’s best-known painters and a seminal figure
that validated the cultural heritage of the Americas, affirming the
importance of revising his own Latin American roots along with a
global perspective in the arts. From a very young age, Vigas had
already begun showcasing his paintings and illustrations and had
participated in several painting salons and exhibitions.
He graduated from the School of Medicine in 1951, although he
never practiced. He devoted himself exclusively to his artistic career
for the rest of his life.
