Rene Almanza has really interested us for years. We were lucky to spend extensive time with the Monterrey, Mexico based painter in San Francisco a few years back, and watched him build a series of portraits were both done in a classical stlye as well as contain hidden narratives of futuristic post-humanism. The artist just opened a new body of work, "Landscape," at FIFTY24MX Gallery.

Over the weekend, Saner opened his newest exhibition “El Cenit Del Venado" at Fifty24MX Gallery in Mexico City. This new body of work consisted of acrylic paintings, ink drawings and sculptures, all presented in a dim lit setting. Saner wrote about the exhibition saying, “The zenith refers to the time when the sun and the moon aligns in the sky above us, and it´s used as a metaphor of those instants where the human being is able to get out of the daily routine and be present, being able to connect with the Great Spirit.”

Maybe you know Pedro Friedeberg as the man behind the now infamous Hand Chair. But did you know the Mexico City-based Friedeberg, along with Frida Kahlo, were the only two Mexican artists recognized by Andre Breton as part of the Surrealist movement? That makes Friedeberg the last of the Mexican Surrealists, and he opens a new exhibition in Mexico City this week.
