Alfredo Castaсeda was born in Mexico City in 1938. He received a degree
in architecture from the University of Mexico in 1964 and in 1969 he had
his first one-man show at the Galerнa de Arte Mexicano, the gallery which
represents him worldwide outside of the U.S. His surrealist imagery
intrigues viewers and his works are included in private collections in
Mexico and Latin America, the United States, Europe and Japan.
In 1983 he had his first individual show in the United States at
Mary-Anne Martin/Fine Art and has been represented by MAM/FA in the U.S.
since then. A retrospective of his work was held at the Monterrey (Mexico)
Museum in 1990 and a monograph celebrating twenty years of work was
published in the same year. Since then he has had a number of exhibitions
in the U.S. and Latin America which are detailed below.
Castaсeda currently lives in Madrid, where he and his family own and
run a highly successful Mexican restaurant.
