The renowned Mexican Italian artist and designer Pedro Friedeberg opened an exhibit last Friday, January 25, at the Casa Diana gallery.

Although Friedeberg began his career studying architecture, he eventually moved into more surrealist genres. Nowadays he is on the cover of art magazines and inspirational publications for other artists, recognized as part of a group of Mexican surrealist artists that includes Leonora Carrington.

Friedeberg is probably best known for his hand-chair design, which can be seen in some of the pieces in his Casa Diana exhibit. However, he has not rested on his laurels, as the exhibit makes clear: his unusual ideas have led him to make even more odd and complex creations.

His work is exhibited both nationally and internationally, and he has collaborated with other artists around the world. In 2010, he worked with set designer Sergio Villegas to put on a mechanized acrobatics display inspired by Mexican craftsmanship, in celebration of the Bicentennial of Independence.

Friedeberg’s exhibit will run at Casa Diana for at least the entire season or a little longer, so go take a tour inside the artist’s surreal mind.
