Does Latin Art Reflect The Culture?
Many people ask themselves if Latin art reflects Latin culture. From a Latin’s perspective, the answer is an unequivocal yes. Here is why. The centerpieces of our culture are food, dance, family, and fun and our art is reflective of our passions. Perhaps, the most famous Mexican artist of the last century is Frida Kahia. Her art perfectly illustrates my point.
Frida’s art, full of color, feminine passion, and romanticism, revolved around the passionate Latin culture. It shows off the best of what Latinos have to offer. Most of Frida’s art illustrates the passion of her relationships, the most painful moments of her life, and her ability to overcome tragedy. Her use of flowers to demonstrate hope in the face of difficulty exhibits the resiliency of the Latin spirit.
Diego Rivera, the husband of Frida, is another famous Latin artist. Rivera, the most renowned of the Mexican moralists, created art reflective the moral culture of Mexico. Together, Frida and Rivera created a legacy of Mexican art and culture that will last for centuries.
Mexican art is indeed reflective of our passionate culture. Our love of food, romantic love, dance, and family drives our lives and our relationships. There is no greater illustrations of who we are and what we do
