Julio Peña is a self-taught artist of indisputable merit who entered the art world in 1984. Since, he has developed a remarkable trajectory. Inspired by the Mexican Muralist Movement of the 1950s and 60s, he has created, sui generis, a world, not exempt of a surrealist tone, where the “calavera” (skeleton) plays the central figure. He concentrates his production in print work, mainly woodcut and lithograph.
His work is generating an enormous interest home and abroad.
