MexArt offers extraordinary hand-crafted art from Mexico.
It was set up in 2015 by a British-Mexican couple, in order to share Mexico’s rich artistic tradition with the UK, and support some of the country’s incredible creative talent. MexArt’s intention is to give the best Mexican artists of different disciplines (glass, clay, jewellery, textiles, tin art, etc) exposure to the UK and European markets and also create a platform for graphic artists to display and sell their work.
Our first stop is Oaxaca in the south of Mexico – pronounced “Wahaca” like the Mexican restaurant. This is the home of the incredible wood carvings popularly known as alebrijes (ah-leh-bree-hess). Entirely handmade by master carvers, they depict animals, people, objects, and imaginary creatures painted with intense colours and intricate patterns.
Many of our pieces are on display and available for sale at Mestizo Mexican Market in London
