The artist focuses his passion on painting and although he has also ventured into the worlds of sculpture and object art, it is definitely the expression of the figure through the management of colour, which distinguishes Arturo’s various works represent themes that range from every day even the unexpectedly imaginative and daring. The peculiar way with the one that the painter has managed to use his own techniques, nothing conventional, such as pastel, charcoal, acrylic enamels, oil, and acrylics on different materials such as paper, fabric, wood, and quarry. Arturo Morín’s painting can make us imagine new worlds or return to worlds already imagined, the figures so simple that they explode imagination, a clear demonstration of the artist’s skills, in addition to the fact that the impact they produce on the viewer is, sincerely, subtle and smart. Since 1982, Arturo has participated in more than 90 solo exhibitions and collectives, also auctions both in Mexico and abroad, (USA, Holland, Austria, Spain, Chile and Argentina Korea, Dubai among others). His work has been exhibited in different galleries, he has also been invited to participate in fine arts biennials in Mexico.

It is considered within the 100 most important living painters in Mexico, recognition was given by the Institute of Fine Arts.
