Salmones, Victor – Mexican Sculptor

Victor Salmones (Mexican, 1937-1989)

Victor Salmones, born in Mexico City, worked as a commercial artist to pay his tuition at the Instituto de Bellas Artes (Mexican National Institute of Fine Arts) where he trained in the exacting lost wax method of casting bronze. Salmones opened a workshop in Cuernavaca in 1966. In 1967 he was awarded first prize at the Biennale Exposition of the Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, Mexico. He gained recognition steadily, both in Mexico and internationally, becoming the most prominent sculptor living and working in Mexico during his lifetime. Public and private collections in some thirty-eight countries have collected and showcased his figural sculpture.
