Bosco Sodi Mexican, b. 1970

1970. Mexico City, Mexico. Lives and works between New York and Mexico City. 


Internationally recognized for his large monochrome works, Bosco Sodi creates his paintings from a combination of natural pigments with sawdust, natural fibers and glue, which he applies in layers on a wooden plane. As the paint dries, cracks appear on its surface, creating an effect that refers to geological and chemical phenomena. In addition to material research, the gesture is a very significant element in the artist's work, as each painting is an uninterrupted process, as if they were performances. Sodi also works with sculptures and installations that dialogue with movements such as land art and informal art, as well as with his Native American heritage.
