April 10

Einar and Jamex de la Torre will give a slide presentation of their work on Tuesday, April 10 at 7:00PM in the Art and Journalism building,  room 225. Their presentation will be followed by a public demonstration at the Glick Center for Glass.

Mexican-born artists, Einar and Jamex de la Torre are brothers and artistic collaborators who moved to the United States from Guadalajara, Jalisco in the early 1970's.  Leaving behind the academic, religious and social rigors of an all-boys Catholic school in 1960's Guadalajara, the de la Torre brothers ended up in the small Southern California surf town of Dana Point, where they discovered the unbridled joys of co-ed public schools.  

While attending California State University at Long Beach in the 80's, they studied sculpture and glass blowing, during which time the artist-brothers began a flame-worked glass figure business.  This business was quickly eclipsed when their artistic collaboration began in earnest in the late 1980's with small mix media works.  In the late 1990's, they began to do large-scale sculptural installations, eventually branching out into commissioned site-specific and public art projects.

Currently, the brothers live and work on both sides of the San Diego-Baja California border, enjoying a bi-national life style that very much informs their art.  Einar and Jamex de la Torre have worked, taught and exhibited both nationally, as well as internationally. Their distinctive three-dimensional work can be found in galleries, museum collections, Museum catalogs, as well as in various public art installations. Recent recipients of the Joan Mitchel foundation award and the Louis Comfort Tiffany foudation award.
