Explorations 0.2 - Alebrijes

Posted by Alfonso Verduzco on

Recognized worldwide Alebrijes are colorful and fantastical sculptures of Mexican folk art which are derived from Aztec myth. San Martín Tilcajete is a beautiful town in Oaxaca known for its artisan’s hand-carved Alebrijes. 

The way these pieces are painted with such care and attention to detail in every piece is incredible.


I believe this melding of hand carved wood and painting could be applied in new sophisticated ways so that the entire world can come to appreciate the talent from these artisans in this  mystical part of my native Mexico.
