One of my first and forever favorite artists is, undoubtedly, Remedios Varo. Since a teenager, I’ve been fascinated by her world of dreams and magic, and definitely inspired me to draw and paint myself. Now, the most complete collection of her works is beautifully curated and exhibited at Museo de Arte Moderno, in Mexico City.
Remedios Varo was a Spanish painter that came to Mexico exiled from the civil war. Although she was trained in arts in Spain and was also very much in contact with the surrealistic circle of artists in Paris, it was in Mexico where she developed her own unique style and flourished as a renowned artist.
