Lesson 1 : Images and Ideas

Other Art Influences

Jiménez collects images not only from sketching and from life experience, but also fills his workspace with photos, reproductions, and drawings.

Image collections on his drawing studio walls come from many art traditions, including pre-Hispanic Mexican sculpture, folk art, and mass-produced consumer objects.

He also draws upon traditional Western art history, which he studied formally at universities in Texas, briefly in Mexico, and as a sculptor's assistant in New York City.

Pre-Renaissance painted sculpture and painted Mexican folk art sculpture have influenced his work.
