ARTISTIC PRODUCTION AND BIOGRAPHICAL SYNTHESIS

JOSE TOLEDO ORDOÑEZ

BIOGRAPHY

He was born in Guatemala City in 1951. His passion for motor cars led him to take part in competitions (1969-1976) and to start his career in that area. In 1974 he graduated in automotive technology in the National Schools, Los Angeles, California, USA, and in 1993 he was awarded a degree in economics from the Mariano Galvez University in Guatemala. He is a recognized promoter and disseminator of culture; he has promoted and coordinated different types of activities and lectured on art in various educational institutions and cultural centers. He is an unfaltering defender of the environment; has given numerous lectures, written popular books and articles on science, technology, and innovation. One of his greatest achievements in this field was getting Guatemala to become the first country in the world to eliminate lead from gasoline all at once. He always fought against privileges. As regulator, he had a very influencing part in the opening of the Telecommunications and Electricity markets in Guatemala. As a result of that arrangement, today, Guatemala occupies first place in cell phone coverage and competition between phone and internet companies (World Economic Forum – WEF, 2014)

He was a Prensa Libre columnist (1991-1999), Director of the Association of Managers of Guatemala (1991-1993), President of the advisory board of the Guatemalan Association of Natural History (1994-2008) -institution in charge of administrating and reconstructing La Aurora  National Zoo-, and vice-president of the Board of the National Electrification Institute (1996-1999).  He was also Superintendent of Telecommunications in Guatemala (1999-2000), President of the Latin American Forum of Telecommunication Regulators (1999), President of the National Energy Commission (2004-2007), Vice-president of the iberoamerican Association of Energy Regulators (2005-2007), Presidential Commissioner for the Penitentiary System Modernization (2007), and President of the Mario Monteforte Toledo Foundation (2000-2008).

Under the Foundation’s seal, he edited 10 books and produced 11 documentaries with the objective of documenting Guatemala’s greatest cultural exponents.  His continuous contact with the art world, led him in the year 2010 to bring out the art within him.  That’s how his successful career as a sculptor began.  He has had 42 solo exhibitions, and 34 public sculptures in Germany, Geneva, Paris, The Hague, Amsterdam, Washington D.C, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala among others.  His flagship expo, Dangerous Sculptures, carries a calling to a new state of consciousness – Creationism – where he condemns the excesses of contemporary art and proposes art should turn back to aesthetics, combined with truth and moral values. His works can be found in Jose Luis Cuevas Museum, Diego Rivera Museum, Automobile Museum in Puebla, Nivada Hall of Time collection in Mexico, Art Museum of the Americas in Washington D.C., and in private collections in France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, The Netherlands, United States of America, Canada, Colombia and Central America amongst others. Today, he shares his artistic activities with his business life.
