Remigio Valdes de Hoyos
Born in Mexico, Remigio Valdés de Hoyos has exhibited his work in Mexico,
Germany, the United States, France, Spain, Cuba and many Asian countries.
In 2001 the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts acquired the triptych Cielo for
its permanent collection. Most recently, the Domaine de Viaud winery of
Lalande De Pomerol selected one of his works for the labels of their 2000
vintage, released in 2002 and for that special occasion, several exhibits
of the artist's work were organized in France and in Canada in 2002;
another exhibit will be held in Japan in the spring of 2004.
In 1998 he was awarded a scholarship by the Starke Cultural Foundation in
Berlin, Germany, to work & exhibit there, after which, in 1999, he decided
to settle in Montreal, Canada, so fascinated was he by the energy which
the city exudes, and has lived there ever since.
