  Artists, Educator

Felipe Ehrenberg was born in 1943 in Tlacopac, Mexico City and died on May 15, 2017.

He was a Mexican artist.

Felipe worked in painting, drawing, printmaking and performance, among other mediums.

Ehrenberg also published books and magazines.

His artistic career of more than 50 years covered the conceptual art of the seventies, including mail art and mimeography, a neographical technique of which he was a pioneer.

Ehrenberg’s multifaceted personality rendered a classical classification of his work difficult, so he defined himself as a neologist since the seventies; the term itself is a neologism which underlines the experimental characteristics of his work.

Ehrenberg considered himself an artist, chronicler, professor, politician, diplomatic, editor, actor, organizer, and tireless traveler.

He died in Cuernavaca, Morelos.

Felipe Ehrenberg passed away at 73 years old.
