This new series of designs in black and white have been inspired by the art of New Mexico of the ancient Mimbres culture.
They are available in fine art print and printable art.
“The Mimbres villages, a subgroup of a larger culture called Mogollon, focused on the Mimbres Valley, to the southwest of New Mexico. Known primarily for their exquisite painted pottery, it is generally accepted that the artists responsible for creating the pottery were women, who received their training from relatives.
This group was culturally active between 1000 BC and 1130 of our era, and developed architectural and ceramic styles characteristic of this small area.
The ceramics produced by the Mimbres subculture are almost always made from containers and finely created vases, with stylized animal, people and symbols.

This beautiful and powerful art drawing appears to be a recurrent anthropozoomorphic figure in Pre-Columbian art in Central America. This particular design comes from the drawing made in a probably original plate of the region of Great Coclé, in Panama.
Shocking and colorful seems to be a threatening or perhaps defensive symbol, full of strength and appeal.
You can find it in the shop printed in fine art aquarelle paper of 240 gr. in a4 (21×30 cm / 8×12 inches) and a3 (30×42 cm / 12×16 inches).
This gorgeous Aztec god design has been inspired by a small ceramic stamp (5.1 x 6.4 x 3.6cm) found in central highlands of Mexico and dated between 12th and 15th century.

This abstract and geometric drawing comes from the shapes carved in a stone seal that this indigenous community used for the decoration of fabrics (although the original forms were of circles and straight lines).
This seal was discovered (among other pieces) when someone tried to remove it from Colombia of contraband.
The illustration is accompanied by the translation of the word “blue”, referring to the name of the store, in different languages, such as:
“blauer – sininen – blua – glas – azul – blue – albastru – mavi – uliuli – biru – turchinu – gorm -zils”
German – Finnish – Esperanto – Welsh – Spanish – English – Romanian – Turkish – Hawaiian – Indonesian – Corsican – Irish – Latvian
Printed on high quality artistic paper from the Canson Infinity range, aquarelle, 240 gr., cotton, textured, broken white and produced without acids or chemicals.
A “few” years after visiting for the first time an archaeological park in Latin America – in this photo the National Archaeological Park of San Agustín, Colombia – as if closing the circle, I find myself giving new forms to many of those beautiful designs that impacted me in my youth.
Sometimes watching the ways of life brings you a big smile.
Almost as big as the one I had discovering the keys of Venezuela, my first steps in South America (later came Colombia) where I were traveling on my own for 6 months, until the money was over.
