FAMILIA LORENZO ART is created by the Lorenzo Family in Guerrero, Mexico. 40 years ago, Lucas Lorenzo broke away from the traditional art of painting on sacred paper to creating vivid images on masonite board. Now, there are three generations of the family creating their own renditions of Lucas's style.
"For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one." Khalil Gibran
Each artwork is full of life, with its brilliant colors and deep symbology. The family's depictions of different characters embracing the devil (often times their own devil self) is very opening to our true selves. Using the Saints, Virgins, and Angels as role models, instead of idols, can open doors to exploration of humanities past, including our own experiences.
Enough words, the images speak for themselves.
