Jordi Teixidor Biography

Valencia, Spain, 1941

Jordi Teixidor in one of the most prestigious names in Spanish abstract art. His collaboration during the seventies with the Cuenca Group (Zobel, Rueda, Torner) in the foundation of the Museum of Spanish Abstract Art set the strict artistic guidelines that Teixidor would follow for more than thirty years.

In 1979 he received a grant from the Juan March Foundation that allowed him to live in New York for several years. During this time he discovered the work of the abstract expressionists of the New York School.

Jordi Teixidor has shown his work extensively in solo and group exhibitions across Europe and the United States, in museums such as IVAM, Valencia, where he had an important retrospective exhibition in 1997, the Centro Santa Monica in Barcelona and the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York.
