Born in Moreila, Michoacan, Mexico in 1935, Alfredo Arreguin has lived and worked in Seattle since 1958. Arreguin's intricate and brilliantly colored canvases are informed by the memories of Mexican culture and natural landscape as well as the environment and the animals of the Pacific Northwest. The hypnotic and meditative patterns found within his paintings are based upon pre-Aztec images, Mexican tiles, and purely geometric and optical patterns.
