Biography Cesar Martinez
An important Chicano artist in the United States, he has been a major figure in the visual arts in San Antonio and South Texas for 25 years. His work includes paintings, charcoal drawings, pastels, and prints.
He was born in Laredo and is a product of the border culture, having grown up around bullfights and even trained to become a matador. Since then, that subject matter has been ever present in his work with some of his figures being Minotaurs with the body of a man and the head of a bull.
In August, 1999, the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio held a retrospective exhibition of his painting.
