The Indigo Arts website has remained active during the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.  We have had to limit our activities since the March 23rd "Stay at Home" order in Philadelphia.  Under current rules I have been able to resume most operations but still must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I am now able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Please stay safe!

About the Artist

Luis Valencia Mendoza
Luis Valencia Mendoza

San Antonino Velasco, Oaxaca, Mexico.  Born 1957.

With his fertile imagination, Luis Valencia creates prominent, boldly painted ceramic pieces that blend tradition and modernity. His work is intended to share the legends, traditions and customs of his Zapotec pueblo, as well as the desires and hopes of his people. In his words, “the oral tradition of Oaxaca travels in the ceramic works and painting of Luis Valencia!” Luis also paints voluminous canvases in both oil and watercolor.  (courtesy of Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art)
