His career is on the ascendancy, and it appears as if the art community, critics, museums, and collectors are beginning to acknowledge his significance. After all, it was Tamayo who asked Bernard Lewin to represent this young man, when few knew of his existence. He was a student of Tamayo at the time, and he was very fond of Cora's work. Lewin did very well with his work, and now, the same applies to several other galleries in the US, and in Mexico. He has enjoyed over 150 shows worldwide, and is in the permanent collection of many significant museums. Very few works from this period by Cora are presently available anywhere in the world.

Vladimir Cora - Mexico
Art Brokerage: Vladimir Cora Mexican Artist: B. 1951. Vladimir Cora is a painter of exuberance, subtle humor and vitality. His works, whether painted, carved in relief or sculpted from the raw cedar he loves, are filled with images of life - primitive, bawdy and with a strange sense of peacefulness. Cora spent his childhood by the beach of Novillero on the Pacific Ocean. The kinds of people, the colors of the fruits and flowers, the delicate poetry of local artifacts- all this would later be part of the transfiguring work of interpretation. Artist Statement: I believe that people are like their country. The colors I use are as brilliant as my homeland. They are colors of the fruits, the trees, the flowers, of the ocean. When it rains, all of my homelands colors are alive. You could say that I am an ambassador of expression for my country, Mexico. Listings wanted. Check out our new Sister site Bluechipartbrokerage.com
