Jesus Lopez Vega - Painter

The intersection of the personal and the cultural are explored in the paintings, sculpture and murals of Jesus Lopez Vega. With works in private art collections all over the world, and exhibited in galleries throughout Mexico, in Lopez Vega's mystical works are found the visions of the ancients, the energy of Mexico's native traditions, the schemes of its political reformers, and an individual's psychological experience of it all. Combining powerful renditions of Mexican magical surrealism with folkloric images, the brilliant colours and shapes of Lopez Vega's art shout in joy and, sometimes, despair. Lopez Vega is largely a self-taught artist, hence the originality of his work, and he credits his childhood immersion in art as the reason he has found a high-level of artistic success today. "I was so fortunate to find myself at the Neil James' children's art program each Saturday," he says. "There, I learned technique and was given confidence." Whenever he's not honing a new artistic vision, Lopez Vega can be found teaching in volunteer capacity at the ongoing program in Ajijic, founded 45 years ago by Miss James, one of Ajijic's original expatriates.
