Mario Cespedes was born in 1940 in La Paz, Bolivia and grew up in both Bolivia and Brazil. A self-taught artist, he acquired his early knowledge of art by visiting museums, studying the artworks there, and trying to replicate them on his own. Brazilian artist Candido Portinari was his greatest early influence. In Brazil, Cespedes became a successful artist and was invited to be in the São Paulo Art Biennial in 1975 and 1977. Cespedes moved to the Los Angeles area in 1982 and has remained in Southern California ever since.
He has had numerous solo exhibitions and participated in many group shows. His other public artworks include an outdoor “painting” for a North Hollywood bike path and an art series for bus shelters in the Florence area (since removed). A leitmotif in both his public and studio work, is humanity’s impact on the natural environment, especially the ongoing destruction of the Amazon basin rainforest.
You can find awards, exhibitions and bibliography of this artist.
The painting it self is in good condition. It's in the original frame. The outer part of the frame is a bite damaged in the corners. It can easily be repainted, but a new buyer maybe just want to leave it in this original state. Please see the photos. They are part of the condition determination.
Will be packed with care and send worldwide with tracking post.
