Biographical / Historical:
Eduardo Carrillo (1937-1997) was a painter, muralist, printmaker, and professor in Santa Cruz, California. Carrillo was a key member of the Chicano art movement in the 1960s and 1970s. He was a founding faculty member of Oakes College at the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he was an instructor at for over twenty-five years. Carrillo received his BA in fine arts from UCLA and later spent a year studying abroad at the Prado Museum in Madrid with his first wife Sheila. Together they moved to Carrillo's ancestral home of La Paz in Baja California Sur, Mexico in 1966, where he founded and directed the El Centro de Arte Regional. The school focused on reviving traditional crafts of the region. In 1969 he returned to California where he continued to exhibit artwork and work as an educator. He taught various disciplines including native traditional pottery, painting, and Mexican Art History, all of which resonated with his own artistic practice.

Carrillo is known primarily as a painter working in oils and watercolors, with images referencing history, religion, and mythology. Increasingly in the 1970s, political subjects entered Carrillo's paintings and mural projects. One of Carrillo's most well-known works is "El Grito," a large scale ceramic tile mural completed in 1979 for the city of Los Angeles. Carrillo died in 1997 following a brief battle with cancer. The Museo Eduardo Carrillo was founded by Carrillo's wife Alison to promote Carrillo's art as well as perform various outreach initiatives including a scholarship program. In 2010 a gallery was dedicated at the Crocker Museum of Art in Sacramento to the paintings of Eduardo Carrillo and his peers.
