Abel Pineda

Abel Pineda (b. 1969, Huetamo, Michoacan, Mexico) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1999. Pineda is known for his precise landscapes and cityscapes, which convey a sense of nostalgia and memory that makes his artwork very accessible.

Pineda's drawings and paintings incoporate his many stories about life in Michoacan with his mother. Themes of his mother's food and work on their farm emerge through the ranchito’s bountiful trees, birds, butterflies, cows, goats, armadillos and flowers. Fine lines, localized color, and attention to detail characterize Pineda’s practice.

Pineda's artwork has been included in close to 20 exhibitions at Creativity Explored.
