Natividad López Amador takes the Zapotec weaving tradition to new heights when she weaves her versions of paintings on a textile canvas. Her fabulous use of color and attention to detail has earned her solo exhibitions in Mexico, Cuba, and France.

César Martínez lives in Juchitán, Oaxaca, where he was born in 1968. A self-taught painter, he has shown his work in galleries in Japan and the United States. Currently, his work is on exhibit at the Fundación Pascual and the Museum of Contemporary Art (muac), both in Mexico City.

Soid Pastrana left the world of graphic design to dedicate himself full-time to visual arts and fiestas. Mexican author Guillermo Fadanelli comments: “He shows us evidence of a painter’s poetic side. A lover of words who won’t let them loose from color and form: a generous artist ready to listen, see, read.”
