Carlos Amorales

Carlos Amorales (born 1970) is a Mexican artist who works and lives in Mexico City.


Amorales studied at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam between 1992 and 1995 and at the Rijksakademie in 1996.


Known for his flat, bold forms, Amorales works in a wide variety of media, including video animation, painting, drawing, sculpture, and performance. Images of his "liquid archive" - birds, spiders, trees, wolves, etc. - recur through his work in blacks, reds, and grays. His earlier works featured masked Mexican wrestlers performing in wrestling rings throughout the world, including at the Tate Modern in London and the Pompidou Center in Paris. His latest animation piece, Useless Wonder (2006) was shown at the Miami Basel art fair. Recently, Amorales has had solo exhibitions at the MALBA in Buenos Aires, the Milton Keynes Gallery in Milton Keynes, UK, Yvon Lambert Paris, and MUCA in Mexico City. The artist's work is featured in many public and private collections, including the MoMA in New York, La Colección Jumex in Mexico City, the Cisneros Foundation Collection in New York, the Margulies Collection in Miami and the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin.
