Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Hugo Crosthwaite was born in Tijuana, Mexico in 1971 and grew up in the tourist-heavy beach town of Rosarito.  He attended San Diego State University, where he graduated in 1997 with a BA in Applied Arts and Sciences from the School of Art, Art Design and Art History.  The artist currently lives in Williamsburg, New York and is working on drawings for upcoming gallery shows including a 2008 exhibition of contemporary international drawings.

Currently, a 4-panel architectural drawing by Crosthwaite is traveling with the exhibition entitled, TRANSactions: Contemporary Latin American and Latino Art.  This exhibition, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art - San Diego (MCASD) will travel from San Diego to the Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Rochester, Atlanta's High Museum of Art, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina.

Crosthwaite's solo exhibitions in Mexico and the United States include Maniera Obscura/In a Dark Manner, ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries, Coral Gables (Miami), Florida, March-November 2005; Caprichos, Trópico de Nopal Gallery, Los Angeles, in 2004; On the Border of Surrealism, Daniel Saxon Gallery, Los Angeles, in 2002; Urbe Tenebrosa, Tijuana's State Gallery in 2001; and Tablas de una Novena at Tijuana's Cultural Center (CECUT) in 2000.

The artist's works have been included several other collective exhibitions throughout the United States and Mexico.  Most recently, a 72 x 60 inch drawing on canvas, Untitled (Enfermas Facilmente), received recognition in La Primera Bienal de Dibujo de las Americas (First Biennial of Drawings in the Americas) Rafael Cauduro Tijuana 2006. Two drawings by Crosthwaite were included in the VII Bienal Monterrey FEMSA de Pintura, Escultura e Instalación, in 2005 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.  A 6-foot square architectural drawing by Crosthwaite was included in the XII Bienal Rufino Tamayo organized by the Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City, this biennial exhibition was shown at many venues throughout Mexico from 2004 to early 2006.  A large figurative piece by Crosthwaite was included in Mujeres de Juárez: Art Against Crime, an exhibition of works by artists protesting the violence against women in Juarez, Mexico.
