Marty Online   happy
The Embassy of Mexico cordially invites you to the opening of the art exhibition “Contemporary Mexico” at the Institute of Mexico in Belize City on Tuesday, June 17th, 2014.

The exhibition includes a series of paintings and sculptures by the self-taught Mexican painter and sculptor Carlos Vivar.

Vivar was born in Mexico City in 1964; he began the graphic design career in 1981 at Universidad Anahuac, withdrawing in 1985 to move to London. Two years later, in 1987, he moved to Milan, where he studied terracotta sculpting and computer graphics.

In 1990 he returned to Mexico where he exhibits his work. Since 2004, his work has also been exhibited in prestigious galleries in the United States and Europe.

In 2007, he won the "La Gaviota" award, recognition that has also been given to well-known Mexican artists José Luis Cuevas and Leonardo Nierman.

Vivar's work is both abstract and figurative; his paintings are inspired by the designs of some of Mexico’s pre-Hispanic codices, usually taking this iconography to large format paintings.

The exhibition will be inaugurated at the Institute of Mexico, on Tuesday, June 17th, 2014, at 7:00 pm at the Institute of Mexico, located at the corner of Newtown Barracks and Wilson Street, in Belize City. Entrance is free and open to the general public.

The exhibition will remain open until July 4th, 2014.

Artist Vivar En Vivo AtBze-Mex Institute

The Institute of Mexico in Belize is opening a new art exhibit at this hour. It features the works of self-taught painter and sculptor Carlos Vivar. He's a well established Mexican stylist - and Marcelino Miranda discussed his works:..

Marcelino Miranda, Press Officer, Mexican Embassy
"And he is presenting a very interesting work in which he integrates some pre-Hispanic elements of pre-Hispanic codex in his paintings. Some of the colors also are from those that are integrated and its an interesting technique. He is mostly doing oil on canvas."

"Through his figurative style we will see some images of urban spaces and at the same time some of this traditional plants in Mexico the "agave" where you extract the tequila and so you also served those kinds of images and some of the paintings for example integrate images of schools that in Mexican tradition/culture is something that is integrated especially at the "day of the dead." We are going to see all these elements integrated or incorporated in some of his paintings."

The exhibition will remain open until July fourth. It is traveling throughout Central America.
