Biography

Toro, born in Mexico in 1982, seeks purity in his lines and gestures, using humor and sarcasm, but also crudeness, to represent what is deeply human. He uses varied materials, including waste, seeking greater expressiveness. In his most recent series he has captured recurring emotional states in times of social isolation, without leaving aside social and political issues that have demanded increasing attention in recent years.

Toro completed studies in the workshop of the plastic artist José Barbosa, a member of Grupo Suma and is co-founder of the artist collective ‘Quinto floor’, with whom he has exhibited on numerous occasions. Among other cultural spaces, his work has been shown in the Material Art Fair circuit (2019), at the Centro Cultural México Contemporáneo (2019) and at the Jesús Reyes Heroles Culture House (repeatedly), as well as in the city of Athens (Contemporary Heritage Art Exhibition, 2018) and in New Bedford, Massachusetts (Co Creative Center, 2019).
