Internationally Renowned Artist, Vladamir Cora

23 Mar

Vladimir Cora was born in Nayarit in 1951. He is self-taught and was able to build a repuation as a formidable painter in his late teens. He knew he wanted to be a painter after seeing a print of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies” in his aunt’s pharmacy where he worked when he was thirteen. His father, a saddle maker and an avid follower of politics, named Cora after Vladimir Lenin.

Cora met Temayo, his mentor in 1978 and remained his student from then until Tamayo’s passing in 1991. In Mexico, Cora is a highly regarded established artist. He now lives and workes in California because of the large opportunities for exposure. He works in Santa Ana, where he is active in the Mexican community. PEACE is pleased to welcome the work of Vladimir Cora to ArteVida!
