Pedro Coronel, a native of Zacatecas, studied painting and sculpture at La Esmeralda National School in Mexico City from 1940 to 1945.
He went to Paris in 1946 where he met the painter Victor Brauner and the sculptor Constantin Brâncusi who would have a great influence on his art.
His first exhibition took place in Mexico City in 1954. That same year, he moved to Paris where he met the poet Octavio Paz. He divides his life between Paris and Mexico City. He exhibited in France, Italy, Japan, the United States and Brazil. In 1984, the artist is rewarded by the Prize
National of Arts and Sciences in Mexico City.
A great collector of pre-Columbian art, early art and Greco-Roman art, he donated his collection to the Zacatecas museum that bears his name.
Although his style is based on abstraction and abstract art, it is imbued with a sensuality and a typically Latin American atmosphere.
