Feliciano Bejar Ruiz (b. 1920 / d. 2007)

During the Cristera War from 1926 to 1929, contemplated the two opposing sides of human nature: the ability to create life and the capacity to destroy life. During those years, he met the Mexican muralist, Merciful Jose Orozo who heavily influenced Bejar's artwork

To survive, Ruiz had many jobs in a variety of fields. He was a salesman of fabrics, a dishwasher and an elevator operator. Ruiz lived in New York City, becoming a painter and frequenting the Metropolitan Museum of Arts. In 1947, he returned to Mexico.

His works are in collections of more than 75 museums in Mexico, Brazil, the United States, Canada, Colombia, France, Israel and Great Britain, among others countries.  Ruiz had the desire to bring the beauty of art to all societies.
