Artist Jesus Lopez Vega


Artist Jesus Lopez Vega explores the intersection of the personal and the cultural in his paintings, sculpture and murals. Jesus Lopez Vega has works in private art collections all over the world, and has exhibited in galleries throughout Mexico. In Jesus’s mystical works you will find the visions of the ancients, the energy of Mexico’s native traditions, the schemes of its political reformers, and an individual’s psychological experience of it all. Combining powerful renditions of Mexican magical surrealism with folkloric images, the brilliant colours and shapes of Jesus Lopez Vega’s art shout out in joy and, sometimes, despair.

Jesus Lopez Vega is largely a self-taught artist, hence the originality of his work, and he credits his childhood immersion in art as the reason he has found a high-level of artistic success today. “I was so fortunate to find myself at the Neil James’ children’s art program each Saturday,” he says. “There, I learned technique and was given confidence.”  Whenever he’s not honing a new artistic vision, Vega can be found teaching in volunteer capacity at the ongoing Children’s Art Program at the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic, founded forty five years ago by Miss James, one of Ajijic’s original expatriates.
