Born Tacambaro Michoacan, 1936. Raised in Guadalajara and California. His formal art studies began at the Instituto Cultural Mexico-Nortamericano in Guadalajara (1958-1960). By the early sixties he had left the realism of his work and he started to work with different mediums; bold brush strokes, painting with spatulas, collage, he began to work on canvas and to find his own voice. Chagall, Klee and Picasso all left their mark on Tellosa’s early work. In 1960 he had his first solo exhibition at the Degollado Gallery in Guadalajara.
In 1961 he moved to London. In 1966 he had his first solo show at the Rimmer Gallery.
In the early seventies he became interested in jewelry design and in 1974 created his first jewellery collection in silver and gold incorporating ancient amulets, coins. To this day his jewellery is in great demand and continues to be a very exciting and innovative part of Tellosa’s creative life.
In 1980 he returned to Mexico and over the years his work developed into working with bronze, sheet metal and ceramics as well as continuing to paint and design jewelry. He produced large-scale works on commission, both bronze sculpture and murals in sheet metal.
This sculpture is signed on the back and dated 1996.
