He is a myth and he is alive. He is one of those rare artists to whom celebration and recognition don’t have to wait to his afterlife. Francisco Toledo’s time is now, as will be later. His personality is as unique as his artwork. Always dressed in white cotton pants with dusty sandals, he can easily be reached in the Santo Domingo plaza in his natal, Oaxaca. Another peculiarity: one of the most reachable artists and also for many one of the greatest.
