José León Cerrillo is a multifaceted artist who explores the limits of abstraction through the use of a wide range of media such as sculpture, installation, printed posters or performance. He works from simple geometrical systems and reinvents the symbols and iconography of modernism and constructivism. His objects, sculptures and installations disturb the space in which they are presented, echoing its architecture and at the same time deconstructing it.

Born in 1976 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. He lives and works in Mexico D.F.

José León Cerrillo received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts and MFA from Columbia University, both in New York. The artist was included in various museum exhibitions such as the New Museum Triennial (New York) in 2015 and in 2013 in the MOMA PS1 exhibition Expo 1: New York curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Klaus Biesenbach. In 2012 and 2011 he was included in two shows at the Tensta konsthall art center in Stockholm (Sweden).
