Ver ArtistaLilia Carrillo

Biografía
Mexican painter and stage designer. She studied at the Escuela de Pintura y Escultura la Esmeralda in Mexico City and later in Paris at the Acad?mie de la Grande Chaumi?re. One of the pioneers of Art informel in Mexico, like her husband, Manuel Felgu?rez (whom she married in 1960), she formed part of a group of young painters who rebelled against the Mexican art establishment in the 1950s. Exhibiting her work widely during the 1960s, she aroused controversy by winning second prize with an abstract work at the Sal?n Esso (1965; Mexico City, Pal. B.A.). In 1968 she also helped set up the Sal?n Independiente as a protest against the government-subsidized Sal?n Solar on the occasion of the Olympic Games in Mexico City. She made several murals, but her most important works were her abstract easel paintings, displaying a fine use of colour. In the 1960s she also worked as a stage designer.
