Santos Bautista Master Bead Artist

Kevin October 2nd, 2011

Santos Bautista comes from one of the best recognized families of artists in San Andres Cohamita.  Extraordinarily traditional Santos has held a number of positions or cargos in his community and is commited to seeing his cultures traditions continue.

Today we are importing new beads for artists like Santos to work with.  We like to think of it as offering people a new look at old traditions.  Folk art as well as indigenous art cannot remain stagnant.  Cultures evolve and change but this does not neccessarily detract from ones core beliefs.  It is our sincere hope that these new innovations will breath new life into this ancient art form and allow the Huichol to express their beliefs in a whole new way that will attract more people to appreciate not only their art but more importantly their culture.

Luis Castro's latest masterpiece

After almost a year dealing with some personal problems, Luis Castro is back and better than ever.  Sometimes one needs to take a step back and evaluate where you are going.  The time off definately did not hurt Luis’ work as he still has that special touch that seperates his work from just about everyone else.
