Javier Peláez
Mexico City, 1976


Javier Peláez appeared in the middle of contemporary art with the qualities of a virtuoso painter with a "realistic" approach to painting. Over the years he has developed a body of work that explores the limits of reality. From a more analytical perspective, his recent work considers the processual and semantic possibilities of painting to re-configure elements of reality, presenting them in a field in which they become uncertain and oscillate between figuration and abstraction.

He studied architecture at La Salle University. His work is part of important public and private collections and has been selected to participate in numerous exhibitions inside and outside the country, including: XVI Bienal Tamayo, presented at the Museo Rufino Tamayo and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca (2014 (Millennium Collection) presented at the Cabañas Cultural Center and at the Chihuahua Museum of Contemporary Art (2013-14), Vanitas (exhibition Individual) presented at the Museo de la Ciudad de Querétaro (2013), Death / Nature presented at The Laundromat Gallery, New York, USA (2011), Sacred Objects (individual exhibition) Mexico DF (2010), Objects and Metaphors (individual exhibition) presented at Arcadia Gallery, New York, USA (2008), A Collective Effort, presented at Ideobox Artspace, Miami, Fla. ), Surfaces (collective exhibition) presented at The Museum of Contemporary Art of Tamaulipas (2007).
