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)
