Artists Pair Up in New Art Exhibit to Compare Reality From Two Different Viewpoints.


By José Luis Arias Benítez

A new art exhibit by two painters proposes two different perspectives by two artists on the landscape, the human figure, and pop culture.

Roberto Fuentevilla and José Luis Arias, two versatile painters in terms of technique, format, and media, join together in the exhibit Two Viewpoints, in which they experiment with variations on their own themes as artists and make personal reflections on wide chromatic expression.

The exhibit is a profound dialogue between form and subject, obsession and freedom, and the fleeting encounters of the imagination. The texture and color of the brushstrokes expose each artist’s particular visual philosophy.

Roberto Fuentevilla

Born in México City, Roberto Fuentevilla’s first contact with art revealed at a young age his true vocation. He studied drawing and painting in Florence, Italy, as well as participating in several painting workshops. He is a member of the Mexican Society of Watercolor. In 2001, his painting Tlacuilco won the National Prize for Watercolor. He has had more than 25 individual exhibitions in México and abroad.

He is a patient and tireless observer of everyday life, where he finds inspiration.

A landscape, a figure, a face, or a shadow are pretexts he uses to give new meaning to everyday life, pouring onto paper all the passion and strength that burn in his heart.

“My painting does not cling to any current trend or theme in particular,” he says. “I paint what excites me. My challenge is finding and extracting the beauty of simple things. That is where the essence of my work lies.”

José Luis Arias

Born in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, in 1966, Arias has spent most of his career as an artist and an art educator. He has a degree in theology and a master’s of fine arts.

He has had more than 20 individual and more than 40 collective exhibits. Currently, his work is exhibited in México and the US. You can view his paintings in San Miguel de Allende at his studio in the Belmont Sierra Nevada, Studio Fuentevilla, Café Casa Europa, and Yo San Miguel Gallery. His work is also being shown in Monterrey, NL Mexico and Tempe AZ, USA.

Arias has taught art at various academic levels. He was the chairman of the school of art and visual communication at the University of Monte Morelos, NL, and a teacher at the Marco Museum, UANL.

José Luis Arias currently lives and creates in San Miguel.
