Curiot working

Thursday, January 25, 5:30pm
Presented by 516 ARTS

The Friends of 516 ARTS are invited to an open studio Q & A with special guest muralist Curiot Tlalpazotl from Mexico City, who is painting two new murals in theentrance of 516 ARTS on the subject of the US-Mexico border. Curiot Tlalpazotl is a painter and street artist whose works feature mythical half-animal half-human figures and scenes which allude to Mexican traditions (geometric designs, Day of the Dead styles, myths and legends, tribal elements). His paintings and murals are rendered in precise detail with a mixture of highly vibrant yet complementary colors. “Growing up in the States sort of gave me a diluted Mexican culture, I had no clue what I was missing out on until I moved back 10 years ago”, says Curiot. “The bright colors, folklore, ancient cultures and the beautiful handcrafts are some of the things that I embraced and which influence my work deeply.” He earned his B.F.A from the Universidad Michoacana de S.N. Hidalgo in 2008. His paintings have been exhibited in diverse solo and group venues including Fecal Face, Anno Domini, Fifty24MX, CC186, Centro Cultural Border, Galeria David Alfaro Siqueiros, Lavamp, La Cream Galeria, and received an award for his work ‘Mass Media’ in the 7th National Biennial of Painting and Engraving Alfredo Zalce.
