Eduardo Rincón (Cuernavaca, Mexico 1964) initiated his formal education as a Biologist, working in tropical plant research for the UNAM University in Mexico City. In 1992, he presented his first show as a solo artist at the Sloane-Racotta Gallery, deciding to devote himself fully to the study of nature through the arts, rather than to pure science. He actively works as a painter and also cultivates the arts of engraving and drawing. In recent years, he has fused his personal research in plant biology with art projects using contemporary installation and sculpture, in addition to landscape design with native and endangered species.


Eduardo Rincón has received the national young artist award by the FONCA (Mexican National Foundation for Art and Culture). He has worked as an Artist in Residence at the Art/Nature center in Québec, Canada.  He founded the Amate Art / Nature initiative devoted to the conservation of the endangered Amate trees. He currently lives and works in Cuernavaca Morelos, México.
