Mexican Artists, Painters and Muralists

 

        The artists featured in this part of our collection are members of a colony of Mexican painters, sculptors, muralists and other Mexican artists in the mystical Copper Canyon area of northwestern Mexico.

Copper Canyon Train

        Running near the deepest and longest canyon in North America, the Copper Canyon railroad (Chihuahua al Pacifico) stretches from the Big Bend country of West Texas though Northwest Mexico to the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez).  The train climbs over pine-forested mountain ranges, steams across solitary deserts, through more than 70 tunnels and over countless tall bridges. The Copper Canyon train stops near the artists' homes and studios.


Jose Baray

Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico

        Jose Baray Ramirez is the oldest and most experienced painter/muralist of the colony. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 1969. Baray founded the Street Artists Guild in Mexico City while attending the university. He toured the United States and Canada from the late 1960s and into the 1980s, exhibiting his work and becoming well-known in art circles.

        Befriended by American painter Georgia O'Keeffe, Baray designed the famous garden and laid its flagstone at her Ghost Ranch home near Abiquiu, New Mexico. Her influence can be seen in some of his paintings and murals.

        His former home and studio sit alongside the Copper Canyon train stop in Cuauhtemoc, Chihuahua. His neighbors included Mennonite farmers and Tarahumara Indians. He brought his talent and mastery of painting to the Copper Canyon area and shares what he has learned with other artists in the colony.  Baray works mostly with acrylic paints, and his paintings tend to be large and on canvas or wood.
