As highlighted in Yucatan Today and Yucantan Living , Abel Vázquez is half of a husband and wife team of amazing artists operating out of La Casa de Los Artistas in Merida, Mexico. I discovered them for myself during my last trip to Merida at their gallery.
Upon entry into their gallery, which could be at home in any metropolitan area in the world, I immediately noticed the huge difference in their styles and mediums. Abel’s work is a colorful, musical, sometimes playful version of Picasso meets the Yucatan (Mayan) world. I loved it from my first glance.
While my art budget on this trip didn’t allow me to purchase one this time, I am definitely saving for one in the near future. I must add one of his pieces to my collection.
