José Pascual Hijuelos
Cuban-American José Pascual Hijuelos was born (1944) and raised on the Upper West Side of New York City. After serving four years of military service in England he returned home and went on to complete an MFA in painting. He studied with Philip Pearlstein, Lucas Samaras, Jimmy Ernst, Lee Bontecou and Alan D’Arcangelo, and was the assistant to Al Held for several years.
An abstract painter, Mr. Hijuelos was nurtured on Postwar American Abstract Painting, influenced by such notables as Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, Ben Nicholson, and Al Held.
Mr. Hijuelos has traveled extensively. For many years, he worked as an archaeological site supervisor and illustrator in Bulgaria, Greece, and Cyprus. He now divides his time between San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and New York.
