Artist: Jamex and Einar de la Torre

EINAR AND JAMEX DE LA TORRE (b. Guadalajara, Mexico, 1963 and 1960) live and work on both sides of the border with studios in San Diego, California and Ensenada, Mexico.  Over the more than twenty years the brothers have collaborated as an artist team, they have developed a signature style featuring mixed media work with blown glass sculpture and installation art. Their approach is additive, constantly combining material and meaning. Influences range from religious iconography to German expressionism while also paying homage to Mexican vernacular arts and pre-Columbian art. In the last 15 years they have been creating photomural installations and using Lenticular printing as a major part of their repertoire. They have won The USA Artists Fellowship award, The Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, The Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, and The San Diego Art Prize, in addition to having 18 solo museum exhibitions, completing 8 major public art projects and participating in 4 biennales.
