Commentary

"Eduardo Vega was born June 13, 1938 in Cuenca, Ecuador. Mr. Vega studied from 1958 to 1960 at the Real Academia de S Fernando, Madrid, Spain and attended the Brixton School of Building, London, England, from 1960 to 1961. He went on to study ceramics at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts et des Arts, Paris, France from 1967 to 1968. Upon his return to Cuenca, a region with a strong pottery tradition, he created one of his most outstanding murals: The Land of El Dorado (1969; Cuenca, Hotel El Dorado). At the time, he was the only artist in the country extensively involved in producing ceramic murals. His large-format works, in terracotta and decorated with slip, emphasize volume by creating sharp contrasts of light and shade. His depiction of tropical abundance and of historical and mythical characters and other stylized local details combine to produce optical labyrinths. By incorporating international styles, his works bring together the vocabulary of Pre-Columbian ceramics and 20th-century pottery to create a very personal language."
