While teaching traditional techniques and large-format painting at Morelense Center for the Arts (Centro Morelense de las Artes), Francisco Valverde became inspired by his students’ search for their individual expression, which lead to his own quest for a new artistic practice. Valverde’s current work utilizes plastic materials to build complexity. These compositions imply a story by utilizing the power of line, direction, suggestive backgrounds, mysterious forms, and variety of depths. Passionate about public and urban art, Valverde participated in The Street Is Yours project in the State of Mexico. And, in 2015, the artist produced an urban intervention at the SMART Art festival 2015 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In 2020 the Fort Wayne Museum of Art presented a solo exhibition of his works.
