Jose Luis Cuevas, Mexican artist, was born in Mexico City in 1934. He was influenced, paying homage to his favorite painters and writers, in numerous drawings and prints. Cuevas has claimed that his drawings portray the solitude and isolation of contemporary man and his inability to communicate. His work was influenced by the art of Goya and Picasso as well as graphic artist, Posada and painter, Orozco, whose genre represented deformed creatures, degraded humanity as well as prostitutes. It is for this reason that he distorts and transforms the human form to the point of uniqueness.
