Papo Alamilla Art Exhibition at Belizean Arts
Belizean Arts, in collaboration with the extremely talented Eduardo “Papo” Alamilla, held an art from February 14th through the 16th. People had the opportunity to visit Belizean Arts and browse Papo’s latest works. He was not present at the exhibition but his art spoke for itself. Milton Chan who is Papo’s nephew (and an artist himself), shared the goal of the exhibition with The San Pedro Sun. He said his uncle wanted to showcase his interpretation of the Belizean lifestyle. He did this by painting what he sees daily and what he grew up with. There were paintings showing off gorgeous marine life, the lush jungles, and scenes of San Pedro in its early days.
Papo is self-taught, and versatile with his style, taking commissions from others as well as painting his own ideas. Chan explained that Papo is extremely involved in the art community and is always helping other budding artists who go to him for advice.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
