Maximino & Yolanda Renteria

Maximino started his artistic career under the great Jose Benitez Sanchez. Eventually, after working under him for 4 years, Maximino decided to start doing his own work with his wife. Maximino got married in 1993 to Yolanda. The couple started to develop their own style, which is heavily influenced by the classic style of his teacher. The themes which are depicted in his yarn paintings all stem from conversations he had with his father, a marakame (shaman) of the community, regarding the Wixarika mythology.
