Age of Omuktlans: Mexican Influenced Art

El Curiot Mexican Art 7

With the heavy influence of Mexican art evident in the work of the artist Curiot, it’s surprising to know that he grew up in the States and only began to experience art “south of the border” a decade ago. Now his works are filled with Day of the Dead references, tibal symbols, geometric designs and figures eluding to myth and legend. The now Mexico City based painter and street artist recently sold out his first US based solo show at FFDG in San Francisco’s Mission district, where he displayed 11 new works in his captivating style.
