A student of Architecture and Industrial Design at the Iberoamericana University, as an artist, Cauduro has gained national and international recognition due to the multiplicity of techniques he employs in his search to innovate.
As might be expected, innovation goes hand-in-hand with controversy and paradox and Cauduro’s works are lacking neither.
In both his easel paintings and murals, he combines and contrasts religious, mythical and Pre-Colombian figures that have made their way into the collective imagination with elements of modern-day culture, including waste materials. The result is a searing critique of materialism, whose banality and ephemerality wax all the more evident compared to the symbolic and the historic. His most recent mural, “Seven Felonies”, can be seen at the Supreme Court of Justice and has set the tone for contemporary mural painting in Mexico.
His works have been shown the length and breadth of Mexico, from Mexico City, Cuernavaca and Guanajuato to Aguascalientes, Chihuahua, Veracruz and Puebla, and have traveled as far afield as the United States, Venezuela, Canada, Spain, France and China.
