This biography from the Archives of AskART:

James Pinto was born in Bijelina, Yugoslavia in 1907.  After studying art in Zagreb he made his way to the U.S in the late 1940’s.  He studied briefly at Chouinard Art School* in Los Angeles before heading to Mexico with his wife Ruska to study mural painting in Mexico with David Siqueiros and Jean Charlot.

In the late 1940’s, Pinto was studying at Escuela de Bellas Artes in San Miguel when a dispute erupted between Siqueiros and the school’s owner.  Pinto and a number of other students were deported from San Miguel to the U.S. but were able to return thanks to a student of artist Reva Brooks, General Ignacio Beteta.  

After their return Pinto, together with Nell and Enrique Fernandez and Stirling Dickson founded the art school Insititute de Allende* where he continued to teach, as well as paint and do murals. Other than works in private collections, the majority of his paintings are owned by the University of Guanajuato.

He died in San Miguel in 1987.
