Gender Object D’Art
Tonantzin is a work of Object Art made by TANE and Gunther Gerzo. Born on June 17, 1015, he was a Mexican artist of Hungarian-German descent who stood out as a painter, stage designer, writer and theater and film director, and was part of the artistic movement known as "La Ruptura". He is considered one of the great painters of Latin America. Together with Carlos Mérida and Rufino Tamayo, he opposed his work to the ideological-aesthetic movement that characterized Mexican muralism. In 1973 he was granted a scholarship from the Guggenheim Foundation. In 1978 he received Mexico's National Fine Arts Award. The Mexican Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences recognized him with two honorary "Ariel" awards in 1994 and 2000. The artist died on April 21, 2000.
