Luchita Hurtado (b. 1920 Caracas, Venezuela) lives and works in Santa Monica, California. In 1928 Hurtado immigrated to New York City, where she began her career in the early 1940s as a fashion illustrator for Condé Nast and a muralist for Lord & Taylor. In the mid-1940s Hurtado frequently travelled between New York and Mexico City, where she worked within a scene of international artists and writers who comprised a North American WWII diaspora. Then, in the late 40s Hurtado relocated to Mill Valley, California, where she associated with the Dynaton Group. In 1951 Hurtado moved to Los Angeles, where she has resided ever since. Hurtado has shown internationally for seven decades and will be featured in this summer’s Made in L.A. 2018 at the Hammer Museum.
