In the fickle and turbulent world of contemporary art, few trajectories have been as consistent and serene as Vladimir Cora’s. He became known in the decade of the seventies, and now, more than 40 years later, he is still painting and creating with an accelerated interest in his works. He has maintained a consistent identity, using rich colors in a minimalist style. His painting technique is not sophisticated or elegant but rather expressionist, coarse and spontaneous. His use of light and color shows influence from master painter Rufino Tamayo, whom he met in 1978 and remained his student from then until his mentor’s death in 1991. Since then, Cora has risen to the heights of his teacher.
Cora spent part of the 80’s in Palm Springs where he exhibited his artworks at the B. Lewin Galleries until the 90’s. Now Cora returns to Palm Springs with his solo exhibition VUELTA PROHIBIDA at the Jorge Mendez Gallery. He considers this exhibition a homecoming and will celebrate the occasion with his most recent paintings and sculptures – rich both in color and culture, and certain to add to the storied progression of his work.
