Biography

Gabriel Orozco (born April 27, 1962) is a Mexican artist. He studied at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas between 1981 and 1984 and at the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid between 1986 and 1987. Orozco gained his reputation in the early 1990s with his exploration of drawing, photography, sculpture and installation. In 1998 Francesco Bonami called him "one of the most influential artists of this decade, and probably the next one too." Within the past fifteen years Orozco has also created work in the medium of painting.

An avid world traveler, Orozco, his wife Maria Gutierrez, and their son Simón, divide their time between Paris, New York and Mexico City.
