SPANISH INFLUENCE ON MEXICAN ART
By Victoria Chick, Figurative Artist and Early 19th & 20th Century Print Collector
Artist Victoria Chick explains how Mexican art was historically influenced through Spanish Colonization, and how artists of Mexico made it their own and gave it a distinct character, on Big Blend Radio.
For many North Americans, the term “Mexican art” conjures up images of the ancient Mayan civilization. For others, Mexican art is limited to the romantic, reproduced images of Aztec legends seen on the walls of Mexican restaurants in the United States. As Victoria Chick explains in her article in the winter 2017 issue of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine, although Mexican art was influenced through Spanish Colonization, artists of Mexico made it their own and gave it a distinct character.
