Video clip from a 2018 solo exhibition for the artist at the Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico (Museum of Mexico City).
Nicolás Guzmán (March 20, 1983)
At 36 years of age, Guzmán has produced a vast array of works and has been featured in a number of museum shows across the Americas.
Born in Veracruz, Mexico, Guzmán began painting as a child and attended the University of Veracruz, from 2001-2006 where he studied painting, drawing, film-making and a number of other mediums.
Shortly after his studies, Guzmán met Oaxacan artist, Alejandro Santiago who invited the young artist to work with him at his studio in Oaxaca City, Mexico. For the following four years, Guzmán worked closely with Alejandro Santiago, where he refined his painting technique and was exposed to and worked with many of the great contemporary artists of Mexico including Francisco Toledo, Guillermo Olguin, and Sergio Hernandez.
Guzmán now lives in the La Roma neighborhood of Mexico City and has recently finished a solo exhibition at the Museo de la Cuidad de Mexico (Museum of Mexico City). He has also recently been featured in an original Netflix show titled Made in Mexico (see Season 1, Episode 2).
