This beautifully composed and delightfully colorful oil and magazine page collage on canvas measures 30 5/8" x 22 3/8" framed; 27 1/2" x 19 1/4" actual and is signed Figueroa lower left and on the back (along with the date 1963). The canvas is a salvaged food sack and the stretcher bars are solid mahogany and the frame is from the 1960's. It depicts a handsome slender young black man in a curb yellow shirt and tight-fitting purple trousers.
The artist has used popular publication cut-outs to provide a background of posters and ads as well as the object he holds in his hands. The paper has some stable, old splits and the canvas is free of holes and tears. Portuguese artist Jose Luis Figueroa b. 1925 created a body of popular cubism-inspired works with some inspired use of mixed media.
