Pedro Friedeberg (Italian/Mexican, b.b. 1937)
Birth Place: Florence (Firenze province, Tuscany, Italy)
The surrealist artist was born in Florence, Italy to Jewish-German parents and moved to Mexico at the age of 3, in 1940. Friedeberg describes his weekly regiment as “I get up at the crack of noon and, after watering my pirañas, I breakfast off things Corinthian. Later in the day I partake in an Ionic lunch followed by a Doric nap. On Tuesdays I sketch a volute or two, and perhaps a pediment, if the mood overtakes me. Wednesday I have set aside for anti-meditation. On Thursdays I usually relax whereas on Friday I write autobiographies.” The true eccentric master designed the coveted Hand chair, where one sits on the palm and the back rest is formed by the fingers. He has work in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Arts and Design and the Smithsonian, and recently had a retrospective at the Instituto Plitecnico, Facultad Arquitectura in Mexico.
