Hugo Orellana Bonilla is one of the most celebrated Peruvian painters of all time. He was born in 1932 in Ataura a district of Jauja, Peru. He studied at the Lima Academy of Fine Arts, Paris, Florence and Mexico City between 1953 and 1961. In 1987 his acclaimed retrospective was presented at the Alianza Francesa in Lima, Peru. A mentor to many young artists from Latin America, he took a special interest in studying the Andean philosophy and traditions. His collection of ethnomusicology is housed at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru. Bonilla was a prolific artist as he continued to explore new styles in Huayta Huasi, his museum-house in the remote town of Ataura in Jauja. He was part of a new generation of artists who also shared with painters, musicians and eminent researchers. While in Europe he befriended Mario Vargas Llosa, Guillermo Lobatón and Julio Ramón Ribeyro among others. Bonilla’s writings were published in different languages and were presented in almost all the world. He left a great legacy to his successors of unpublished paintings and writings, voice and video recordings, paintings and sculptures.
