There's something so fresh and summery about the combination of pink and orange (which has been dominating street and personal style sites), and I love the warm, bright palette's similarity to the work of Rufino Tamayo.
Tamayo (1899-1991) was a Zapotecan Indian artist who traveled abroad and eventually founded the Tamayo Contemporary Art Museum in Mexico City.
During his early artistic career in Mexico, Tamayo was looked down upon by other artists such as Diego Rivera and
José Clemente Orozco, whose work dealt with overt political themes.
Tamayo, more interested in the personal, everyday human identity, relocated to New York, and eventually Paris, where he found wide recognition and popularity for his work.
A key element of Tamayo's work is his use of mixografia, a technique in which handmade paper was used to build a textured surface, upon which the artwork was created.
"Art is a means of expression that must be understood by everybody, everywhere. It grows out of the earth, the textures of our lives, and our experience." --Rufino Tamayo
