About Francisco Pulido
Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 22 - May 13, 2014
Reception: Thursday May 1, 2014 6-8 PM
Contemporary photographer Francisco Pulido’s photographic prints on paper incorporate various techniques. Having grown up near rivers and mountains in his native Mexico, the artist developed a strong and tender affection for nature and landscape which saturates these stunning compositions. Able to work equally well from a micro and macro frame, the delight of these works is the way in which the artist so expertly captures the infinite sublime and the minute details of life. Having traveled near and far to capture the most striking views and stunning earthly splendors, his photos paint a global picture of sorts, including images of Puerto Rico, Holland and beyond. Whether expressive of exotic plant and animal life, classic architecture or traditional landscape, Francisco Pulido’s trained eye and fastidious attention to detail makes these works truly memorable.
Francisco Pulido was born in Victoria City, Tamaulipas State, Mexico and currently lives and works in Dallas, Texas. A proud member of the 1997 'La pluma del Ganso' Mexico City artist group, to this day Francisco Pulido remains heavily influenced by the vibrant spirit of creativity characteristic of his Mexican homeland.
