Bruno Andrade Retrospective: A Native of South Texas Exhibition
This first-ever retrospective exhibition features the artwork of American painter Bruno Andrade (born in San Antonio in 1947). A highly accomplished painter, Andrade was known as an abstract colorist. His art was exhibited in major exhibitions and reproduced in mainstream art publications. The artist earned prestigious fellowships and awards throughout his illustrious career and was also recognized as a master painting teacher. Many of his art students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi graduated to become art teachers and professional artists. This retrospective includes drawings, prints, and paintings, representing a creative output from Andrade's early period as an emerging artist to his later years as a mature painter of landscape and still life genres. A prolific artist throughout his life, Andrade has a unique historical place in both American abstract art and Chicanx art. He has been compared to modernists Matisse, Cezanne, and Gauguin. Bruno Andrade is represented in Mexic-Arte Museum’s permanent collection, including the Serie Project print. He participated in Mexic-Arte’s exhibitions in the 1990s. This retrospective exhibition complements Mexic-Arte’s role and mission of collecting, preserving, and interpreting Mexican, Latinx, and Latin American art and culture. Unequivocally, Andrade is a major Latinx/Chicanx artist that has made an impact on the aesthetics of Chicanx art. He was a great educator and role model for many young aspiring artists of South Texas.
