(México, b. 1940)

 

Considerado el mejor artista viviente de México, Francisco Toledo tiene un alcanze de talentos inigualables. Es un experto impresor, dibujante, pintor, escultor y ceramista. Su arte refleja una gran apreciación por la estética de la naturaleza, particularmente la de animales que no son convencionalmente asociados con la belleza (murciélagos, iguanas, sapos, insectos.) La visión moral de Toledo afirma que el mundo de los humanos y el de los animales son uno con la naturaleza. Toledo muestra un sentido de lo fantástico muy bien desarollado al crear criaturas híbridas, parte humanas y parte animal, a la vez monstruosas y juguetonas.
