Jose Antonio Velasquez

(Honduran, 1906–1985)

Jose Antonio Velasquez was a self-taught Honduran artist. His work depicts typical Honduran street scenes, distinctly stylized and frequently portrayed from a high vantage point and rendered in the rich colors endemic to Central American culture. Often lauded as among the first American Primitive painters, his style is associated with Naïve Art. In addition to his best-known paintings, he also worked in photography and sculpture at various times. Velasquez garnered critical acclaim in his lifetime, and was included in the first Latin American Art Biennial of 1951. His life and art served as inspiration for a film titled The World of a Primitive Painter in 1973, which increased his exposure and acceptance worldwide. Born on February 8, 1906 in Charity, Honduras, Velasquez died on February 14, 1983.
