Francisco Benitez

Francisco’s main themes in his work are a focus on the recuperation of Old Master techniques and approaches, with a heightened awareness of contemporary art. He enjoys juxtaposing art styles from various periods to highlight the political contexts, gender roles, and psychological realities of the various human subjects he paints. He uses historical pigments and materials to excavate the past, and make statements about our own place in history at this time of upheaval and inexorable change.


Benitez’ work is included in numerous private collections, some high-profile, such as Jean-Paul Gaultier’s, throughout the United States, as well as in France, Italy, Australia, Mexico, Canada, Sweden, etc. His work is on permanent display at the New Mexico State Legislature’s public art collection, as well as at the National Hispanic Culture Center and the Conseil Général de l’Aveyron in France. He has lectured on painting of the baroque period, as well as having his work featured on the covers of various books and publications.
