Enrique Guerra

After graduating from Paier College of Art in Hamden, Connecticut, Enrique Guerra studied with Robert Lougheed and Tom Lovell in New Mexico.  Lougheed is the artist who Guerra admires the most because of his ability to transform an insignificant subject into a truly brilliant work of art.  Guerra works in both oil and bronze.  Most of his paintings depict the vast desert and brushlands of Northern Mexico and South Texas.  He enjoys painting street scenes in semi-abandoned towns, or capturing the images of farmers with their livestock as they till their land.  Because he has spent the greater part of his life in these very surroundings, this is the subject matter that continues to captivate and shape the images of his work.

Guerra, who lives near McAllen, TX, received a commission to paint murals for the Mission Trail in San Antonio and for the International Trade and Technology Building at the University of Texas-Pan American. He exhibits at Nedra Matteucci Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico and at Nuevo Santander Gallery in McAllen, Texas.
