Gabriel Orozco spent his formative years in the vibrant cultural milieu of Mexico City. Intricately connected to muralism, photography, and the political literature of the 1960s and 1970s, it significantly influenced his artistic sensibilities. Orozco studied at the Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico and the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, laying the foundation for his diverse artistic trajectory.

Currently dividing his time between Tokyo and Mexico City, Orozco has emerged as a prominent figure in the art world, particularly during the early 1990s. His reputation was built upon a multifaceted exploration of drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, and later, the inclusion of painting in his oeuvre. Orozco’s distinctive artistic approach blurs conventional boundaries between art and the everyday, seamlessly integrating complex geometric forms with organic materials and embracing elements of chance in his creations.
