Tamayo is a Mexican artist of Mesoamerican Indian descent, who combines European painting styles and Mexican folk motifs in his paintings and prints. He was concerned with form and symbolism, and combining Mexican styles with Cubism and Surrealism. The saturated color, simplified forms and earth-like textures reveals the artist's indigenous roots and also his interest in simple modern subject matter.
