Join us for an art exhibit at the Instituto’s Museum featuring Mauro Murillo’s work.
Mauro Murillo was born in Coahuila, Mexico and moved to San Antonio, TX in 1995. During high school, he enjoyed the SaySí art program where he explored creating art in different mediums including graphite, charcoal, aluminum, paper maché, papel picado, and others. While Murillo was pursuing an Associates degree in Communication Design at San Antonio College, he began to shift his focus more toward the fine arts, and in a drawing class he met an established local San Antonio artist that inspired and encouraged him to consider being an artist as a career. After graduating early 2020, his passion for art strengthened as he started painting with acrylics on canvas. Murillo had his first solo show at Bear & Ink gallery in 2021. His work has also shown in group exhibitions at UNAM San Antonio, Mexican Cultural Institute San Antonio, Not For You Gallery, and various types of venues in San Antonio and Houston,TX.
