Mexican-born painter Enrique Fuentes’ works combine the pictorial language of Austrian actionism, informalism, and German romanticism. His penchant for the Austrian avant-garde is undoubtedly influenced by his mentors Arnulf Rainer and Günter Brus. Fuente’s gestural paintings are set within European symbolism’s expression of beauty around the turn-of-the-century: the transformation of the grotesque into irresistible beauty.
