Vibrant oil paintings and mixed media sculptures by brilliant  Armando Adrian Lopez.

Armando Adrian Lopez was born in 1965 in the town of Santa Maria in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. Steeped in the mysticism and mythologies of his native land, his work bridges Catholic imagery and beliefs, and Native traditions (prior to the European colonization of Mexico) within a contemporary context.

Lopez cites Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros as major, early influences. Lopez’ intent is not to be part a particular genre; though his work is closest to Magical Realism, the figures in his paintings, upon close inspection, include facial elements that are more closely aligned with figurative abstraction, while contradictions of reality or more closely aligned with Surrealism.

Tanya Talamante

Tanya Talamante’s collage assemblages, explores our

cultural fascination with physical perfection.

Blueprints of women serve as icons of timeless beauty,

even as they subvert the ideal figure

through deconstructed silhouettes. With vibrant color

and bold pattern, Talamante grapples with the idea of

unattainable beauty and the pressure women feel to become

idealized forms. Eachwork is meticulously constructed

through Talamante’s unique process, which incorporates

multiple layers of paper, paint, wax and resin.

Born in Tijuana, Tanya has lived in the USA for the past

9 years Now she and her children call San Jose del Cabo their

home.

She graduated from Design in Mexico and studied in the

National School of Art in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
