ABUELAS/OS ANCESTRALES

24 OCTOBER - 24 NOVEMBER 2019

He was born in Chichaltontic, Municipality of Tenejapa, Chiapas, where the ancient Mayan-Tzeltal memories, traditions and languages still remain. Plastic artist, painter-peasant, self-taught, printer, draftsman, engraver and muralist.

The expo seeks to express the connection of the ancient language, from the investigation of the Ch’ulel painting: Tzeltal Mayan spirituality. It revolves around life, nature and primal energies, conceiving that everything lives, vibrates and that there is an interconnection and relationship with everything.


The work on display honors ancestral knowledge and aims to connect with young people, in the spirit of preserving memory, as a tool against oblivion. Historical memory as the source of all rebellion.

Thus, the artistic creation of memory opens spaces for dialogue in different cultures, the image as a source of communication, dialogue in such a plural and diverse world.
