(Seattle Times)

Among the more unique and innovative contemporary artists of [the Pacific Northwest] is Alfredo Arreguin. Born in 1935 in Michoacan, Mexico, he has spent almost a half century of his life in Washington state. His paintings reflect both experiences and are characterized by distinctive and pervasive patterned backgrounds, elaborate details and images in the patterns, intense colors and figures, objects, and themes that are reflective of the Northwest and Mexico.... The text in this handsome volume is in both English and Spanish with numerous beautiful reproductions of his paintings that bear witness to Arreguin’s distinctive talent.

(Choice)

Arreguin’s palpitations of color and light and arrested movement awaken our sublimated vision. His paintings seem to force our entire being to experience its livingness as an insatiable yearning and questing of the eyes.

(Tess Gallagher, from the Foreword)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has some of the most amazing and beautiful paintings I've ever seen. All lovers of Mexican or Chicano art should see this! Alfredo Arreguin's subjects include portraits of Mexicans--Frida, Diego, Zapata, Cesar Chavez, Guadalupe--lots of landscapes (mostly jungles but lots of others too), animals, indigenous iconography, and of course faces, millions of faces, all presented in his completely original, eye-popping style that makes you feel like you're entering another dimension. Most of Alfredo Arreguin's paintings have not been plastered all over the internet, so you are sure to find plenty of things you've never experienced before.
